"At Melanin Mosaic, we're redefining artistic expression through a dynamic fusion of Pagentry, dance, and storytelling"
Melanin Mosaic isn't just your typical ensemble; we're a vibrant mosaic crafted with creativity, collaboration, and the rich narratives of the African diaspora, where each piece fits together to form a beautiful, cohesive whole. Our global collective consists of talented individuals, each contributing expertise not only in marching arts and dance but also in music, film, lighting, audio design, and various contemporary art forms. Guided by Artistic Director and Founder, Jarid Polite, our dedicated team of educators, creatives, and skilled performers is committed to bringing the Pan-African narrative to life through impactful films, powerful performances, and outreach initiatives.
Creativity and collaboration aren't merely values within our mosaic family; they form the very essence of our identity. We've cultivated an empowering environment where each member can contribute their unique skills and perspectives, collectively crafting something extraordinary. In doing so, we not only celebrate artistic diversity but also prioritize mental health awareness, ensuring a supportive space for every individual within our community.
Headquartered in the dynamic city of Brooklyn, NY, (with current membership spanning across North America), Melanin Mosaic transcends traditional performance platforms, anticipating boundless horizons for our collective members. We are not just artists; we are trailblazers creating career opportunities via the marching arts—whether through public performances, cruise ships, theme parks, theater or standing shoulder-to-shoulder with professional dancers in the commercial industry. Envision gracing prestigious stages, contributing to film sets, becoming the face of a brand, or championing local community initiatives. The possibilities are expansive, and our commitment is unwavering, as we continue to share our craft with the world in ways as diverse and boundless as our artistic tapestry.
