Mosaic Dance Theater Company Announces Fall 2020 Season

 We are thrilled -- THRILLED --  to announce Mosaic Dance Theater Company's fall season.  To be able to have a fall season during COVID-19 quarantines is a privilege, and we want to share with you everything that's on the calendar.  Of course, everything is virtual, and we are hard at work creating new and relevant programming coming to you throughout the fall months. 

A Fabulous Fall Festival

The Making Moves Dance Festival at the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning is happening this September 25 and 26, and MDTC is happy to be a part of its virtual programming. Faced with myriad challenges brought about by COVID-19, the artists involved are applying their creative processes to present the works chosen by the curators of the festival.  MDTC will present Beyond the Image Suite, an excerpt from our larger production of the same name which premiered in December 2019.  Performers are Samara Adell (choreographer), Morgiana Celeste Varricchio, Kaitlin Hines-Vargas, and Danielle Hartman.The festival will be presented at no charge, but you must register.

Register now so you don't miss it!

Roll Out the Red Carpet

We are all set to premier
 Mosaic: A World in Motion, a livestreamed video magazine.  Each month is a new program with a different subject, including: in-depth looks at works from our diverse repertory; cabaret nights with "live" performances by MDTC artists and guests; interviews with and performances by Guest Artists; related dance topics.  Co-hosts for World in Motion are Morgiana Celeste Varricchio, Samara Adell, and Adriana Rosa,  Each program will be livestreamed multiple times at no charge, but must register to receive the link. Our first program, "El Zar," will be shown on October 3 & 4, 2020. We are excited to begin.


Cancelled on March 12 by the coronavirus shutdown,
 Linked by Tradition has been rescheduled as a virtual weekend of dance from India, Spain, and The Near East for November 6 through 8.  Friday, November 6 provides master classes for NJ high school dancers, taught by Samara Adell (Middle Eastern dance), Antonia Messina (flamenco), and Rimli Roy (Indian dance). These three master teachers and choreographers return on Saturday, November 7 for community workshops. A concert performance featuring MDTC and our guest artists will be livestreamed on Saturday, November 8. All activities will be presented at no charge. Full details and registration links are coming soon.  Mark your calendars to immerse yourself in these three distinct yet related dance forms.
