How MADCO Works
Audiences don't just watch dance, they experience it! MADCO's Artistic team researches topics that impact the St. Louis community. Commissioned choreographers turn this research into movement, shining a light through mainstage performances.
MADCO is known for fostering an inclusive and nurturing environment where community members grow together.The concert material turns into community outreach. MADCO works with community partners to develop a program that can be replicated for others with similar needs.
Education that moves the community! Day-long dance education programs are developed for K-5th grade students. These programs reach every student in the school through performance and creative movement classes for all. MADCO works with project collaborators and partnering educators to develop a study guide for day long programming.
