About Us

Our Mission

MFDP|SF–Mark Foehringer Dance Project|SF brings together artists and audiences, teachers and students, other organizations and communities in a creative process dedicated to opportunity and new ideas.

Who We Are

Mark Foehringer Dance Project|SF (MFDP|SF) serves as a catalyst for professional level contemporary
dance. Enriched by this collaborative process, MFDP|SF seeks to present diverse original dance work
to a variety of communities on an annual basis. We focus on three areas of dance; producing and performing the
works of Mark Foehringer, presenting works by other choreographers through Dancing in the Park
and other dance events and dance education through our apprenticeship program and Young
Choreographer’s Forum.
