Dear Friend,

2021-2022 is our visionary year. 

Gratitude, Determination, and Hope are words that fill my heart as I reflect on McKoy Dance Project || MDP’s first complete season (2020-2021). Despite the challenges of the past year and a half, the company created some beautiful, invested, and authentic works. This allowed us to employ numerous dedicated artists of different mediums for various opportunities. We were able to inspire through both live and virtual programming, including film.

MDP is a dream being realized sooner than I expected. I did not think I would have a company for another 10 years. I had spent time reflecting on my identity as a Black queer person, while simultaneously experiencing the lack of representation. Our communities lack substantial content that adequately reflects the experience of those most marginalized in our society. MDP answers this call by providing safe platforms that are well equipped to support, fund, and discuss our individual and collective narratives through dance. We proudly uphold our values as they guide us in our mission: Authenticity, Integrity, Community, Equity, and Fun.

As we continue to build programming, I cannot thank our peers, friends, family, and supporters enough for your belief in our mission. We promise to continue fighting for visibility, representation, and all of our voices. Join McKoy Dance Project || MDP as we embark on a journey of healing and communion. I warmly invite you and I welcome you to be a member of our growing family. We will accomplish many great things together.

With Love and Light,
