How MADCO Works

MADCO Performances
Performance

MADCO's Artistic team spends 2 years researching topics that impact the St. Louis community. Commissioned choreographers turn this research into movement, shining a light on important topics, and creating mainstage performances. Audiences don't just watch dance, they experience it!

Outreach programs
Outreach

The concert material turns into outreach programming for targeted communities. MADCO works with community partners to develop a program that can be replicated for others with similar needs. MADCO is known for fostering an inclusive and nurturing environment where community members grow together.

Education

Day-long dance education programs are developed
for K-5th grade students. These programs reach
every student in the school beginning with
performance followed by creative movement classes
that all students have the opportunity to participate
in. MADCO works with project collaborators and
partnering educators to develop a study guide for
day long programming.
