With more than 25 years of experience, McDonald Selznick Associates (MSA) has earned its status as the global leader in its field. MSA created - and still blaze the trail for - the worldwide representation of dancers, choreographers, creative directors, and educators. They have created performances and danced with such musical artists as Taylor Swift, Madonna, JLO, Beyonce, Celine Dion, Ricky Martin, Pitbull, and Michael Jackson. Their film, television, and stage credits are equally impressive as MSA’s clients have won multiple Tony, Emmy, and MTV Awards. MSA educators travel to every corner of the globe leading sold out, jam packed master classes and they work in close collaboration with Relativity Media for the new Relativity School of Dance. And now they bring you MSA On Tour, providing an opportunity for students to experience the best working dancers and choreographers in the entertainment industry. MSA is thrilled to bring to you this one-of-a-kind experience, MSA On Tour!
