NMD’s mission is to make work that is emotionally daring and honest; inspires discourse and understanding amongst diverse communities; and integrates dance, theater, and technology in unique ways. By following this mission, NMD has become an integral and respected part of the Texas dance community.
NMD2 is a Pre-Professional Level Company for dancers ages 13 to 17. The focus of NMD2 is to cultivate the necessary artistic skills and professional excellence of dancers to prepare them for college/professional careers. The programming focuses on building self-esteem, self-confidence, and leadership skills through dance in a positive atmosphere. Students will train extensively in contemporary art forms; work with a roster of current choreographers on new works; and perform locally in the Houston area.
