ABOUT MB&D:
Megan Bascom & Dancers (MB&D) is a NYC based modern dance company founded in 2009 and we need your support! Our work is highly collaborative and relationship driven, involving memory, intimate interaction, and an overall commitment to expansive motion that expresses physical potential. The individual characteristics and nuances of each collaborating artist are imperative and highly utilized during each project as a choreographic platform to create works that come directly from human experience, provoke feeling and ignite the imagination.

Your monthly patronage supports our creative process on an on-going basis and most importantly goes directly to support the incredibly talented dance artists and collaborators who help make each project come to life. As industry-wide funding opportunities for mid-career level companies like Megan Bascom & Dancers remains limited, we look to you, our patrons, fans, and friends to help us sustain our artistic growth and development.

We rehearse about 20-28 hours.
Studio rental is $15/hour.
Dancers are paid $8/hour and we hope this amount can grow.
