Momentum Dance Company (MDC) is now entering its 16th season, with a new Artistic Director at the helm.

Jacquelyn Forcher founded Momentum Dance Company in 1998 to provide local ballet dancers with professional training and performance opportunities. In 2004, MDC incorporated into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Momentum Dance Company’s primary performance venue is the Irving Arts Center, which has recognized MDC as one of its Founding Organizations since 2006.

In 2020, Jacquelyn stepped down as Artistic Director of Momentum Dance Company. The company decided to carry on with a new Artistic Director, new ideas and a new home.

Momentum Dance Company’s mission is to provide local dancers with professional training and performance opportunities, while simultaneously serving the community through arts education and outreach initiatives. To realize our mission, Momentum Dance Company (MDC) produces programs in varied styles of dance–primarily classical ballet–to promote participation in, accessibility to, and enduring appreciation for the Fine Arts in Irving and the greater DFW Metroplex.
