Artistic Director and Founder

Morgan McEwen, ballerina turned artistic director, launched MorDance in January of 2013.  This young company, with dancers from some of the world’s most prestigious companies, has playfully leapt to the edge of the classical ballet world. MorDance explores the use of athleticism in its aim to modernize and innovate while honoring the grace and beauty of classical ballet. MorDance premiered at Manhattan Movement and Arts center on May 3rd, 2013. Ms McEwen was then selected to choreograph on MorDance at Dance at Socrates in 2013 at Socrates Sculptural Park.  That same year, Morgan was asked to create a new work for the CounterPointe Project, celebrating female choreographers making work on pointe. In 2014 MorDance helped the Sheen Center open their doors by being the first company to perform in their brand new black box theater. MorDance has been granted two space residencies at the Silo and Mana Contemporary and continues to present new work yearly at the Sheen Center. Ms McEwen was recently asked to create a new work on the company for Sounds of The City and will be choreographing on Columbia Ballet Collaborative this Fall.
