Hailed by the New York Times for its “fresh intelligence, crackling imagination, hilarity and terrific performing,” Earl Mosley’s Diversity of Dance has performed at the Joyce SoHo, Jacob’s Pillow’s Inside/Out, New York Parks Foundation Summer Stage and Brooklyn Dance Festival. Since his Dance Magazine Teacher of the Year honor in 2005, Mosley has created several long standing programs, teaching residencies and outreach programs in schools in various regions of the country and abroad. In 2006, Mosley started the well-respected, Earl Mosley's Institute of the Arts (EMIA) summer intensive in Connecticut serving nearly 200 dancers over four weeks. Profits from the Winter Repertory Showcase, one of two off-shoots began in 2011, are donated to Dance Against Cancer. Also in 2011, Mosley, Brooks, Brown, Matthew Rushing, Ailey luminary Dudley Williams and others started Hearts of Men, a concert featuring men of different generations sharing (through dance) perspectives and life lessons with each other and audiences. This initiative grew into a two-week summer intensive for men ages 13-90 that serves over 75 dancers every year.
Mosley’s work can be found in the repertoire of several companies including The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Dallas Black Dance Theatre and The American Ballet Theater Studio Company. Additionally, his work at Montclair State University and Anderson University was presented by American College Dance Festival Association at the Kennedy Center’s June Festival. Mosley will be honored with the 2016 Martha Hill Mid-Career Award. In all endeavors Mr. Mosley and his artist colleagues strive to provide an environment where students from diverse ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds can achieve the highest levels of excellence through positive collaborations with teachers and peers.
