Moraporvida Contemporary Dance was founded by Artistic and Executive Director Jacob Mora.
“Por Vida” is Spanish meaning “For Life” and acts as a statement and declaration that we are the people we are by nature and not choice. Moraporvida is a testament for the life we have been given and for the courage to live it well. When you feel the only choice is to do what is in your soul, and be who you were meant to be, you do it for life.
MPVCD is a multicultural repertory company developed from contemporary, urban and traditional dance styles. Contemporary dance is distinctively modern in nature, however the company prides itself on the fusion of many dance forms and ideals, exploring dissecting and exposing social, emotional and cultural constructs of our past, present and future.
Jacob Mora and Co. has been performing, teaching and setting works across the country for over two decades. The unique and powerful works have been featured at national conferences, festivals, award ceremonies and university programs.
