Mission

Manhattan Dance Lab’s (MDL) mission is to provide a space for children express their themselves through physical movement. Our aim is to allow children to take pride and ownership of their internal world by offering them a creative outlet to express themselves and to  use their experiences to develop their own choreography and movements. MDL also offers children the opportunity to deepen and expand socialization through work with peer groups. MDL provides a safe and fun environment for children to build confidence and explore their internal wolds and foster a lifelong love of moving.


To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking.
— Agnes De Mille
