Since it was founded in 1980, Brooklyn-based Mark Morris Dance has become one of the most well-known dance companies in not only dance circles, but also by mainstream audiences. Choreographer Mark Morris is celebrated primarily for his one-of-a-kind musicality and has worked with artists and companies including the San Francisco Ballet, American Ballet Theater, the Royal Opera and visual artist Isaac Mizrahi.
The Mark Morris Dance Group spent three years in Brussels as the national dance company of Belgium, but returned to the states to tour and perform in 1991. Now performing in dozens of cities around the country each year, the company is known for its commitment to live music, which has been a feature at every performance since 1996.
