Learn More CUSTOMER STORY: Mark Morris Dance Group The Mark Morris Dance Group was formed in 1980 and gave its first concert that year in New York City. The company's touring schedule steadily expanded to include cities both in the U.S. and in Europe. Based in Brooklyn, NY, the company has maintained and strengthened its ties to several cities around the world. The Mark Morris Dance Center provides a home for the company, rehearsal space for the dance community, outreach programs for local children, and a school offering dance classes to students of all ages. Challenge In 2001, the Mark Morris Dance Group was transitioning from a touring group to a dance company that would house a state-of-the-art dance center. The new Center was going to offer a wide range of programming including performances and classes. Therefore, MMDG needed to increase its administrative and program operations, which meant a new, more robust accounting system capable of handling this growth and the detailed account needs required to support both the Center and the Group.
