MorDance Seeks Social Media Intern (ONGOING)

MorDance Seeks Social Media Intern (ONGOING)




Saturday, January 8, 2022 - 12:00am daily through January 31, 2022




Who We Are:

Founded in January 2013, MorDance is a New York based and female-led ballet company that employs movement principles of athleticism and grace to create new works that push the boundaries of both classical and contemporary movement. Prestigious and sophisticated, the company’s mission is rooted in the commitment to modernize and innovate the ballet landscape through providing high-level and accessible performances for all audiences. MorDance is a company of distinction and excellence in the community, providing opportunities for female leadership and collaboration, while  maintaining a robust and widespread schedule of performing arts outreach programming designed to empower youth in the community who do not have open access to performing arts. With a firm belief that high quality ballet performances should be available to all audiences in all communities, their work breaks down barriers of movement, social, and gender-based inequalities in dance and cultivates an empowered environment for artistic expression and exploration. Heralded by The New York Times as having, “an eye for shaping the arc of a dance as carefully as the transitions and details within it,” MorDance has utilized collaborations between dancers, composers, musicians and production design elements to present inventive works on stages throughout New York City, at residencies with the CUNY Dance Initiative and Kaatsbaan International Dance Center, and celebrated at the Sounds of the City, Dance at Socrates,  Counterpointe, and Battery Dance Festival.
