Morgantown Dance is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide opportunities to dancers in Morgantown and surrounding communities.
MDS encouraged Witt to involve as many dancers as possible from every local studio in Morgantown, Fairmont, Clarksburg, Bridgeport and Uniontown, and to create a work utilizing the genres of tap, jazz, contemporary and modern ballet.
Witt, along with other Morgantown Dance faculty, has created more than 30 roles for young children and adults, of various skill levels. Experienced in working with diverse groups, Witt also works to create a supportive working environment for the dancers, multi-generational volunteers, families, designers and production crew.
