ABOUT MAC BALLET
The Mid-Atlantic Contemporary Ballet Company was founded in 2008 with the intention of enriching the lives of community members and the artistic development of its dancers through contemporary and classical dance. The Mid-Atlantic Contemporary Ballet Company is a small, project based company that is directly serving the community of Pittsburgh, PA and surrounding areas. Our organization was created in the name of artistic freedom and gives professional opportunities to its Artistic Directors, Choreographers and Dancers. Our intention is to give opportunities to our Artists to enhance their skills and develop their creative talents. This will expose the Pittsburgh community to artistic works and creativity that its members otherwise would not get the opportunity to experience. The community members gain exposure to the Mid-Atlantic Contemporary Ballet’s artistic development through public performances at various venues.
The founding directors and dancers of the Mid-Atlantic Contemporary Ballet Company met as educators and students in a college environment. With the desire to further their artistic development the Mid-Atlantic Contemporary Ballet, also known as MAC Ballet, was formed. As a project based company, the dancers and artistic directors donate their rehearsal time, however, the dancers are compensated on a per project basis. The company has obtained it's non-profit status and is now able to seek seed money and funding as a fully operational non-profit project based company.
