$5,000 Goal

Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth’s mission is to develop the art, artists, and audiences for Modern Dance through performance and education in schools and the community.

The CD/FW organization embodies this through a variety of formats including performances featuring the CD/FW professional company, the organization’s “Dance Delivered” educational and community outreach programming (including outreach to at-risk students in area public schools), and presenting other artists/companies through events such as Modern Dance Festival at The Modern (at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth).  CD/FW frequently collaborates with other institutions/museums to create special site-specific projects and thematic performance projects which promote collaboration across disciplines, art forms, and various lines of inquiry.  

Many of the company’s performance projects incorporate opportunities for audience participation, blurring the lines between audience/performer, and further fostering the development of the art form by encouraging participants to recognize the dancer/creator within themselves.  

Collaborations with area non-profits have included projects with the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Kimbell Art Museum, the Amon Carter Museum of Western Art, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Nasher Sculpture Center.

Currently led by artistic director Kerry Kreiman and associate artistic director Tina Mullone, the CD/FW performing company premiered in 1990 at the Dallas Morning News Dance Festival, and the presenting arm of the organization has been producing concerts since 1985 when the organization started under the name New Works Project.



Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth's mission is to develop the art, artists, and audiences for Modern Dance through performance and education in schools and the community.


CD/FW would be honored to receive tax-deductible donations of any size on North Texas Giving Day. Donations help to support the organization's free programming - like our "Dance Delivered" events in area public schools and presentations like the Modern Dance Festival at The Modern. In addition, donations help cover on-going expenses such as liability insurance and storage.

In addition, we are in need of board and committee members who can help the organization develop new formats for community outreach programs which will mitigate health risks to participants as we resume programming.
