The School at the Mark Morris Dance Center

The School at the Mark Morris Dance Center is a community-based dance and music program in a fully inclusive and nurturing environment, located in the heart of the Brooklyn Cultural District. The school’s diverse and professional faculty provides progressive, non-competitive, and inclusive instruction with classes accompanied by live music. The school is intentionally a non-recital program with a student-centered, culturally responsive instructional approach based in its core values of artistic excellence, creativity, community, and access.

The school is split into two divisions: Children and Teen Programs (ages 6-18 years) and Early Childhood Programs (ages 18 months-6 years). Join the email list to receive email alerts about registration. Visitors and guardians will be permitted inside the dance center on a limited basis.

Early Childhood Programs include Parent & Toddler Movement and Creative Dance. Children & Teen Programs include Adaptive Dance, Ballet, Hip-Hop, Jazz Dance, Modern Dance, Music & Singing, Tap Dance, and West African Dance.

The school also offers specialized study programs for children and teens and a monthly family fun series for all ages.
