Nomad Contemporary Ballet was founded in 2012 by Artistic Director Kristen McGrew. It is her mission to provide a vehicle for beginning and veteran choreographers to workshop new pieces. Audience members can discover and follow new talent from the beginning of their careers or watch an established artist create new work that pushes the boundaries of their current vocabulary. This year, over the past nine months, Nomad has hosted various workshops to showcase and provide opportunities for dancers to sample bits from the very pieces they created for Nomad. Some of the various choreographers that have workshopped and/or created for Nomad: Adrienne Hurd, Norbert De La Cruz III, Ursula Verduzco, Kristen McGrew, Janet Attalah, Alexei Augoudine and various others. This has brought quite a following of a variety of dancers, some classically trained with little or no contemporary training, to exclusively contemporary trained dancers who have taken an active interest to branch out and expand in a supportive and encouraging environment. This formula has made for a dynamic energy in the studio and developed some incredible dancers as a result. We invite you to see the fruits of our efforts and see for yourself what Nomad Contemporary Ballet has to offer our dance world.
