• About

The International Guild of Musicians in Dance (IGMD) is a (501(c)3) non-profit professional organization dedicated to fostering collaborative relationships between dancers and musicians. IGMD was formed in Brockport, NY in the winter of 1990 to address the particular concerns of musicians working the the field of art dance, and to promote its members' efforts in the field.

  • To document the history of musicians in dance
  • To foster collaborations between dancers and musicians
  • To establish standards of excellence for musicians in dance
  • To establish training programs for musicians in dance

Both the US/World and European chapters of the Guild have members who create, perform, write about, and teach music for ballet, modern dance, contemporary dance, and concert dance forms from around the world. As a point of distinction, though our members are interested and active in many dance forms and settings, the Guild is primarily concerned with music for dance on the concert stage, rather than recreational dance.
