Motion Theater Lab is a chamber dance company focused on creating works of deep passion and beauty and comprised of seven critically acclaimed performers under the direction of choreographer and dancer Michael Leon Thomas. Mr. Thomas performed principal roles with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Donald Byrd/ The Group, Lar Lubovitch Dance Company and Complexions Contemporary Ballet. Jennifer Dunning of the NY Times wrote, “Michael Thomas scorched the stage with his quiet intensity during his years with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.”

Recently, Motion Theater Lab celebrated the world premier of its new work, Aquarius Rising, at the Jackie Robinson Park in Harlem for the City Parks Summer Stage Series.
