A World of Opportunity

Our students can audition for the MMC Dance Company, study abroad or apply for one of countless internships. Seniors are assisted in resume preparation, cover letters and photos, to land interviews and auditions—our priority is preparation for life after graduation.

Our faculty consists of some of the finest professors and dance professionals in New York City. Under their guidance, students develop the discipline, self-confidence, and self-motivation valuable in any field, but essential to dance.

Studying dance at MMC gives a student the foundation to combine discipline with artistry and creativity — ultimately for a seamless transition to the professional dance world.
