National Dance Week - STL - 2017

April 22, 2017 at Washington & Grand

Honorary Dance Company


Modern American Dance Company (MADCO) entertains and educates through innovative dance experiences. MADCO is committed to collaboration with other organization. Collaborations advance our mission by bringing diverse points of view and a broader range of resources to the artistic product, thereby making more meaningful arts with a greater impact on our community. Based in St. Louis, MADCO is a repertory ensemble headed by Executive and Artistic Director Stacy West. Originally under the name Mid America Dance Company, Alcine Wiltz and Ross Winter co-founded MADCO in 1976 to provide a space for professional dancers to live and work in the Midwest while providing entertaining performances and educational opportunities to the local community. Touring throughout the region in the 80's, the company primarily performed work by Wiltz and Winter. Though Wiltz left the company in the mid - 1980's to become the Director of Dance at University of Maryland, MADCO continued to thrive under the direction of Winter until he lost his life in a tragic car accident in 1994. Long time company member Stacy West was appointed Artistic Director and restructured the organization by hiring a wealth of guest artists to create new work. In 2007, MADCO became the Professional Dance Company in Res idence as the prestigious Touhill Performing Arts Center. MADCO reaches over 30,000 St. Louisans annually with concerts, community outreach programs and educational programs.
