For the past 30 years, the Brooklyn-based Mark Morris Dance Group has enthralled critics, dance enthusiasts, and novices alike with its amazing technical expertise, unique artistry, and its signature use of music. Hailed as "one of the greatest living choreographers" by The New Yorker, Mark Morris has had a profound impact on the dance world ever since he burst onto the scene in 1980, and continues to create important new works with a singular ability to combine beautiful music, graceful movement, and delicious wit. Morris' choreography is known for its inherent musicality, exemplified by the company's commitment to perform to live music. MMDG returns to the Quick Center with a program featuring works that span the choreographer's career.

Free Movement Workshops for persons with Parkinson's and their caregivers
Sunday, September 9 from 11 a.m.-12:15 p.m. and 2-3:15 p.m.
In Dance for PD® classes, participants explore movement and music in ways that are enjoyable, stimulating and creative. A ten-year
collaboration between the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson Group, the program is built on one fundamental
premise: professionally-trained dancers are movement experts whose knowledge is useful to persons with PD. This popular class, which has been offered at the Mark Morris Dance Center in Brooklyn since 2001, is appropriate for anyone with PD, no matter how advanced. No dance experience is required.
