Atlanta Contemporary Dance Co

A nonprofit organization

Atlanta Contemporary Dance Company was proudly established in August 2022 by Executive and Artistic Director Lauren Overstreet. The company is a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to celebrate and empower artists in the community through energetic dance performances, classes, and workshops. We believe in the power of dance to drive creation, unite society, and promote change.

The Atlanta Contemporary Dance Company debuted its first show, "Breathe," in March 2022 under the direction of Lauren Overstreet to investigate the journey of life with grief through movement. Following an overwhelming success during our first season with "Breathe," which was featured by both PandaKo Media and DanceATL, the company will be performing three more encore performances in December and an exciting new evening-length work coming this Spring 2024. In addition to our phenomenal performance seasons, the Atlanta Contemporary Dance Project was recently featured in the 2023 DanceATHENS showcase and conducted a residency with the Athens Studio for Performing Arts in October 2023. The Company also partnered with FabFab AI T-shirt Collective in their latest cross-discipline arts campaign.

Dance is community, and we invite you to join ours. In order for us to continue this momentum of creation, partnership, and joy, we need your involvement. Any contribution, big or small, has the capacity to revolutionize the future of art. We look forward to utilizing your donations to appropriately compensate dancers and administration, generate more groundbreaking choreography, and engage more youth and young professionals through residencies and masterclasses in this upcoming and future seasons. We thank you for your ongoing support of the Atlanta Contemporary Dance Company. Our company and outreach are made possible through the generous help of our friends.
