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.  

Arts Education makes a tremendous impact on the developmental growth of every child and has proven to help level the "learning field" across socioeconomic boundaries.
