Modern Dance

MamLuft&Co. Dance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a resident Modern Dance company of professionals who provide education, outreach, and performance based in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The organization produces performance, education, and outreach.

Founded in 2007, ML&Co. focuses primarily on evening-length works. In support of this endeavor to create substantial opportunities for local artists while also producing original Modern Dance in Southwest Ohio, the Company receives its first National Endowment for the Arts new works creation grant in 2017-2018.

MamLuft&Co. Dance was named “Best Dance Company Pushing the Envelope” by CityBeat staff in 2012 and awarded “Best Design Concept” in the 2013 Cincinnati Fringe Festival by the League of Cincinnati Theatres. In 2015, The Cincinnati Enquirer‘s David Lyman named MamLuft&Co. Dance amongst only the Cincinnati Ballet and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre as the year’s “exceptional moments in dance,” calling a performance by ML&Co. “enlightening.”

Through highly creative processes, the Company creates intricately staged, physically-demanding dance theatre. To reduce barriers to arts experiences, and Modern Dance in particular, ML&Co.’s subject matter aims to be relevant and resonant across cultures, classes, and backgrounds. Prior works have examined such issues in the past as belonging, shifts of power, communal resolution, aging, and memory loss. The company creates works for the camera, as well, including two half-hour films, Latitude (2012) and Unyielding (2013), which was the first and only dance project to be supported by a City of Cincinnati Arts Fellowship.

MamLuft&Co. Dance believes in connecting the public with excellent art, and to do so, has collaborated with international sound artist Allard Van Hoorn; the Contemporary Arts Center; the Cincinnati Art Museum; concert:nova; Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra; Constella Festival; and many others.

Beyond the stage, MamLuft&Co. Dance serves thousands of children and families each year through education and outreach programs. Currently active a total of 5 days a week through four different afterschool and year-long education programs, ML&Co. brings dance to many who would not otherwise experience it. The organization has also launched their Advanced Division for Modern Dance Study for children ages 6+, provides classes for adults, and organizes summer programs for all levels of study.

The organization has been awarded funding from the Stillson Foundation (Fifth Third Bank, Trustee), the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Ohio Arts Council, ArtsWave, Summerfair Cincinnati, The Louise Taft Semple Foundation, and The Wohlgemuth Herschede Foundation.
