Moving Current Presents NewGrounds 2011

Moving Current will celebrate Florida’s contemporary dance artists with another 
sensational concert of professional and up and coming choreographers on 
NewGrounds 2011. This year’s artists include choreographers such as Tampa native 
Casey Hicks and Lakeland choreographer Shelley Bourgeois (also a member of 
Moving Current). Joining them are Florida State University graduates Jessica Mayhew 
and Trent D. Williams Jr., FSU dance major Joshua Reaver and Jacksonville 
choreographers Cari Coble, Tiffany Sullivan Fish and Rebecca Levy. "This year, the 
quality of dance work is outstanding." stated Moving Current Director, Erin Cardinal. 
"The applicants were reviewed by a panel of dance professionals who were not given 
the names of the choreographers, the works were chosen based on the title, a brief 
statement about the work and what was presented on the DVDs. The names of the 
artists were revealed later in the process."

NewGrounds began in 2001 by Moving Current directors when they decided to fill the 
need for choreographers to present their work, help connect Florida choreographers 
and ultimately support and nurture modern dance in the State of Florida. 10 years 
later, Moving Current still has an important need to fill for the many talented and 
diverse choreographers living, studying and working in Florida. The dances brought to 
this year’s NewGrounds stage are thoughtful, exciting work with a wide range of 
contemporary dance styles. There will be something for everyone to love. A new 
experience, a journey to somewhere new... If you’ve seen NewGrounds in the past, 
you definitely won’t want to miss the 2011 edition. It’s the perfect way to celebrate 
new voices in the art of dance... together in Tampa!

And that’s not all...

Along with the weekend performances, NewGrounds 2011 will offer a Master Class 
Series May 18-22 taught by Miami’s Brazz Dance Theater Artistic Director Augusto 
Soledade and distinguished professor and former dancer with the Jose Limon Dance 
company, Andre Megerdichian. Al classes are held at the USF dance studios, Holly Dr. 
Tampa

Join us for Show & Tell, an opportunity for artists to share their dance works with the 
community. The choreographers are invited to participate in a quick open response 
directly following the performance of their work with distinguished contemporary 
choreographers leading the audience in discussion. You dance, we watch. We dance, 
you watch, and we’ll all talk about what we experienced together! 4:00 pm on 
Thursday, May 19 at Theater 2. FREE
