Morgan McEwen, ballerina turned artistic director, launched MorDance in January of 2013. This young organization, with dancers from some of the world's most prestigious companies, has playfully leapt to the edge of the classical ballet world.

MorDance premiered at Manhattan Movement and Arts center on May 3, 2013. That same year, Ms. McEwen was selected to choreograph on MorDance at Socrates Sculptural Park and again at the Counterpointe Project, which celebrated female choreographers creating dances on pointe.

The following season the Sheen Center named MorDance their resident dance company. MorDance has also been granted space residencies at the Silo at Kirkland Farm and Mana Contemporary. Ms. McEwen has been commissioned to create works on Columbia Ballet Collaborative and will create a new work for Eglevsky ballet in 2017.
