Join us in preserving the history and legacy of the Modern American Dance Company. With your help, MADCO will survive to 50 years and beyond.
For over 47 years, the Modern American Dance Company (MADCO) has served as an integral organization in the St. Louis community. MADCO is the oldest dance company in the region, and has touched countless lives through innovative dance performances, as well as educational outreach and community programming for underserved populations. MADCO provides a home for over 50 artists to create and collaborate each season. MADCO's educational programming, Books in Motion, touches the lives of over 500 students each year.
After dedicating almost 50 years to community service and action, MADCO needs your help. The past five years have presented several serious challenges, most notably, the loss of our residency at the University of Missouri St. Louis (UMSL), high turnover in leadership members and staff, the loss of regional and nation-wide grant funding, and finally, COVID-19.
MADCO narrowly survived these obstacles, but the long-term effects are catching up with the company.
We hope that the St. Louis community and the dance community at large will rally in support to prevent the closing of our doors.
Please help us preserve the longest-running dance company of the region, and help us sustain for years to come! Visit our website for more details and ways to support the Modern American Dance Company.
