Our MDT Outreach Mission
Marin Dance Theatre
encompasses a rich tradition of excellence. Above all, we foster a
community that encourages generosity of spirit and effort. As the
students and instructors strive for excellence, so much is gained
and learned by all through sharing these talents with the greater
Bay Area community.
Education makes a tremendous impact on the developmental
growth of every child and has proven to help level the
"learning field" across socioeconomic boundaries. (Involvement
