It is in giving back to the community that MorDance truly fulfills its mission to make ballet accessible to all. In 2015, we established a relationship with Art Start, an organization that nurtures the voices, hearts and minds of New York City's underserved youth through consistent creative workshops inside homeless shelters, alternative to incarceration programs, and partnering youth agencies. Through our partnership with Art Start, MorDance has brought ballet to life for children in the shelter system through performances and interactive workshops. MorDance also looks to provide a number of tickets to community groups in an attempt to enable those who may not be able to see ballet, the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of live performance.
In 2017 MorDance will look to further their community involvement through performances exclusively for local school children. Many educational institutions have been forced to eliminate their arts programing. We at MorDance are looking to provide children across our area with exposure to dance as a performing art.
