Mission Statement

Contemporary Dance/Fort Worthâ??s mission is to develop the art, artists, and audience for Modern Dance through performance and education in schools and in the community.


Fort Worth's first professional modern dance company, Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth was formed with the mission of promoting and producing Modern Dance in the Fort Worth and Tarrant County area. The CD/FW Company's repertory includes works by choreographers recognized on local, regional, and national levels. In addition to producing the CD/FW Co., the organization also acts as a presenter, bringing nationally and internationally-recognized modern dance companies and independent choreographers to Fort Worth audiences. The CD/FW company has toured throughout the U.S. and in Mexico, and artistic leaders Kerry Kreiman and Susan Douglas Roberts have taught and performed internationally, representing the company as solo artists throughout the world (Taiwan, Brasil, Guatemala, Paraguay, Spain, France, Mexico, Hong Kong). CD/FWâ??s â??Dance Deliveredâ?? educational and community outreach programs bring dance to under-served communities and the general public to reach audiences and participants of all ages, abilities, ethnicities, and socio-economic backgrounds through presenting performances, teaching residencies, workshops and master classes in schools, community centers, workplaces, shopping centers, museums, parks, festivals, landmarks, and more. In 1996, CD/FW was awarded the Fort Worth ISD Adopt-A-School Program Outstanding Small Company/Organization Award for its exemplary partnership with Manuel Jara Elementary School. CD/FW is honored to be a member of the artist rosters for the Heartland Arts Fund of the Mid-America Arts Alliance, the Texas Commission on the Arts Touring Arts Program, Imagination Celebration Fort Worth, the Arts Council of NorthEast Tarrant County's Education Roster, and the Arts Council of Fort Worth and Tarrant County's Neighborhood Arts Program with the City of Fort Worth. The company established a school in new studios at Orchestra Hall in southwest Fort Worth in the fall of 2003, and now offers year round classes for ages 3 and up, at all levels of experience.
