Experience the Depth and Richness of Modern Dance

About the Project

Created by Full Radius Dance in 1995 to showcase the diversity and excellence of Atlanta's dance scene, the Modern Atlanta Dance (MAD) Festival is one of the only professionally juried dance festivals in the southeast and it may be the oldest dance festival in the southeast!  

We've presented more than 100 companies and independent choreographers on the MAD stage; more than 1200 dancers; and paid more than $60,000 in honorarium to MAD participants. The festival is dedicated to building community for local artists and companies and providing audiences with an evening of exceptional artistry.  

Why do we do all this? Because we believe in the depth and richness of Atlanta’s modern dance companies and artists.

How do we do all this? Through the support of generous donors like you.

The 2020 MAD Festival Artists: 

  • Dance Aegis
  • Kendall Alexander
  • Corian Ellisor
  • Julio Medina
  • Danielle Swatzie
  • Full Radius Dance, Host Company   
How will your gift be used?  The money raised in this campaign: 
  •  Will assist in providing honorariums for the artists - $3,000.00
  • And help with theatre rental and technical assistance (those lighting designers, stage hands, sound technicians, etc. that make the professional performance possible) - $3,000.00.
