Mission Statement

The operations of Muse Contemporary Dance Theatre assist its artistic staff in fulfilling its mission to transcend the capabilities of the dancer and inspire him/her to take a more vested interest the art of dance via a professional curriculum.

Description

The Pre-Professional Training Curriculum, which has already fully operated for over two years, consists of several residencies to fully nurture the development of the young artist. The curriculum includes: paid trips to see at least three (3) local/regional performances featuring professional dance companies, in-house master classes with industry professionals (Broadway and LA commercial veterans), mental health/wellness residencies with partnering non-profit organizations, and periodic nutrition lectures with local and trusted medical professionals.

With 128,937 students enrolled in a Prince George’s County public school, 61.4% of students identify as African-American and 66% of students receive free and reduced lunch. Dance education is typically known to be quite an expensive investment, often raging anywhere from $300 - $600 a month for dance training only; that does not include the cost of competitions, technique conventions, costumes etc. Unfortunately, because of this, exposure to the arts have become less of a priority in the households of the aforementioned demographic. The long-term goal of Muse's pre-professional dance education program is to provide more exposure to dance for children in these households, while continuing to nurture the potential in each dancer and serve as a safe-haven for young emerging artists.
