NewMoves engages Pittsburgh audiences in supporting new talent with new movement ideas that are fresh, challenging and fun. NewMOVES Contemporary Dance Festival is committed to providing Pittsburgh contemporary dance artists and audiences with opportunities to experience dance in a new way. The festival presents diverse dance works that push boundaries with dance experiences grouped into three categories -- shared Evening Programs, YouthMoves, Emerging Choreographers and Community Dances.

The festival seeks to encourage and present experimentation, collaboration and performance excellence by emerging choreographers.

Peter LeBreton Merz, Head of Ballet and an Assistant Professor at Point Park University, is featured in Program A. His piece, Certainty, is a duet with two dancers in almost constant physical contact, but without any use of their hands, hold on to each other almost as if they are dancing a tight rope.

The Emerging Choreographers Program features new 10 minute dance works by four promising choreographers, of which Point Park students Kaylin Horgan and Luke Murphy, are a part. Horgan and Murphy's works will be performed as part of the evening programs.
