What ModArts Dance Collective Is

ModArts Dance Collective (MADC), a professional modern dance company, is comprised of dedicated, passionate, and gifted artists on a quest for technical growth and artistic nourishment. The company employs a synthesis of ballet and modern blended with Afro centric undertones to articulate the human condition and spirit through the unbounded art form of dance. ModArts Dance Collective prides itself on works of dance that possess both high artistic merit, as well as works bearing a readiness to connect and inspire a multitude of people from various walks of life. ModArts Dance Collective artistically represents an adoration and joy for movement that transcends race, gender, and socio-economic backgrounds. ModArts Dance Collective provides a nurturing environment where artists can embody, and audiences can experience, the desire, athleticism, and vitality of dance.

The Mission of ModArts Dance Collective

ModArts Dance Collective's mission is divided into three parts: to educate and expose people to dance and healthy living, to provide cost effective ticket prices for all people to experience high quality concert dance, and to collaborate with other artists to build an arts community that will inspire, challenge, and support each other.

MADC is passionate about exposing and sharing the power of movement with people of different ages and levels. We offer an afterschool program, Arts In Motion (A.I.M.), a creative and educational dance program for ages 4-6,  an on-site arts education program for grades 1-8, Creative Exploration through Movement (CEtM), and provide open company modern classes for professional artists.

There is so much breathtaking art it can become a bit overwhelming and expensive to see. MADC's second mission is to keep tickets at cost effective prices so art can be more assessable to all people. MADC uses the funds collected from classes, workshops, residencies, fundraising, and donations to maintain the most cost inclusive ticket prices possible.

'Collective,' refers to the members of a cooperative enterprise. Specifically the collective includes the artists who perform in the studio and on stage, as well as the collaborating musicians, composers, visual artists, and creative writers. MADC provides a safe and open environment where artists of different genres can start a diagolue, and create something that reflects everyone's strengths, embraces their weaknesses, and pushes all involved outside of their creative comfort zones.
