NewGround Theatre Dance Co.

NewGround Theatre Dance Company is a professional contemporary dance company premiering unique works that focus on the human heart connection.

  • NewGround performs professional storyline productions that thematically encompass messages of social awareness, inner change, and well-being for ourselves and the planet.
  • NewGround’s full-length dance productions are presented to the community annually at the AUM Center.
  • NewGround also tours locally and collaborates with other companies on various art projects, performances, and presentations.

At the AUM Center, NewGround Theatre Dance Company performs a unique and ground-breaking approach called, Empathic Art Exchange. These presentational performances focus on choreography that elicits an empathic response from its viewers. Audiences engage in the power of “empathic resonance” first-hand, and have opportunity to view the creative “response-exchange” between visual artists from the community and the NewGround dancers.

NewGround continuously experiments with new methods of physical expression and focuses on the synergy of artistic forms for all of its thematic and storyline productions.

“Our empathic approach to art, which is a fusion of feeling within dance, is what makes NewGround Theatre Dance Company so unique.  We develop material through improvisational methods that are introspective, therapeutic, and transforming.  We believe that the energy expressed through our choreography, as a result of our own personal awakening and change, naturally affects our audiences.  NewGround Theatre Dance Company is founded on the belief that positive change happens through the human heart connection . . .”
– Coleen Lorenz, Artistic Director
