Christopher K. Morgan & Artists is a professional contemporary dance company said to be “direct, transcendent and entrancing” by The Washington Post. Voted Best Dance Company in the Washington City Paper’s 2015 annual reader’s poll, CKM&A can perform a wide range of compelling dances that appeal to diverse audiences. CKM&A works to demystify contemporary dance through community dialogue and online video content, providing presenters with excellent tools (eye-catching photos, customized preview videos, thoughtful text) for marketing the work and developing an audience. The company is in its third year in residence at American Dance Institute in Rockville, MD. CKM&A provides professional and pre-professional educational opportunities through its intensives, workshops and university residencies, peer-to-peer artist facilitation and commissions work by other choreographers. Director Morgan is also currently touring his NEFA / NDP funded evening-length solo work Pohaku, which is eligible for NDP Tour Support. “Among the best, if not the best, of the Washington Area’s choreographers.” Critical Dance
Morgan and other company artists are accomplished educators and are available to teach master classes to any level of student. Morgan is also a gifted facilitator and could lead an engaging discussion about the work before or after the presentation, participate in a panel exploring some of the issues in the work, or create an engagement activity tailored to the needs of the individual presenter and community. Issues of identity are sometimes explored in Morgan’s work, and this can lead to rich discussions with a variety of different communities. Fees for these programs range from $200-$1000.
