MPG is committed to individuals who serve the world through their drive and dedication. As such, MPG has featured its Messengers, extraordinary dancers and athletes, in every campaign since its inception. Stella Abrera and Sascha Radetsky from American Ballet Theatre, Lesley Rausch from Pacific Northwest Ballet, and Bijoya 'BJ' Das, an LA-based hip-hop artist, newly recruited this season, are just a few of the many Messengers inspiring MPG. Past Messengers of particular note are Ashley Bouder and Craig Hall from New York City Ballet, Maria Chapman and Lucien Postlewaite from Pacific Northwest Ballet and Olivier Wevers, formerly of Pacific Northwest Ballet and current artistic director of contemporary dance troupe Whim W'Him.

About Manhattan Movement & Arts Center
Manhattan Movement & Arts Center was developed by Rose Caiola as the home of the Manhattan Youth Ballet, a graded, pre-professional ballet academy and performance company. Ms. Caiola, a former dancer and actress, founded the academy in the fall of 1994 as Studio Maestro at 48 W. 68th Street, and today serves as the youth ballet's executive artistic director.

The school is modeled after the European academies. The Manhattan Youth Ballet has acquired a reputation for excellent teaching in an intimate and individually supportive environment. The school's graduates have danced professionally with American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, Nederlands Dans Theater, Ballet de España, San Francisco Ballet and Complexions.

As the ballet academy grew, the search for a larger space inspired in Ms. Caiola a highly personal vision of a studio and theater complex that would encompass all aspects of dance education and performance.

mmac opened its doors in June 2008, occupying a dramatic bi-level space within The Element, a luxury high-rise condominium. In addition to the Manhattan Youth Ballet, mmac's studios and theater host daily adult dance and fitness classes, the mmac Kids program, summer intensive programs, as well as an array of performances and special events.
