“A real gift not only to Pittsburgh’s dance community, but also to the arts community-at-large.”
—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Now in its seventh year, newMoves Contemporary Dance Festival celebrates rising talent and established artists alike, and plays a vital role in Pittsburgh’s dance scene by encouraging artists to take creative risks. Audiences experience innovative new voices, as local contemporary dancers and choreographers share the stage with visiting guest artists. This year’s festival artists include: Alexandra Bodnarchuk, Christal Brown, Jasmyn Fyffe, Gierre J. Godley, Ella Mason, Cherish Morgan, Jamie Murphy, Mario Quinn, Gabrielle Revlock, Brady Sanders, Kensaku Shinohara, Jil Stifel, Jean-Paul Weaver, and Alisha Wormsley.

Supporting the newMoves Contemporary Dance Festival will help outstanding dance makers increase the impact of inspiring and engaging projects. While foundation dollars provide support for operating costs, our programs rely on support from individuals like you. You may contribute any amount to support newMoves Festival. Every donation counts.
