Kyra Newton is a dance artist in Calgary, AB. She is passionate about sharing her love of movement with others and creating a safe space to explore endless possibilities. Newton completed her BFA in contemporary dance and sociology from Simon Fraser University. While studying in Vancouver, she had the opportunity to perform dance work created by Wen Wei, Judith Garay, Desiree Dunbar, Crystal Pite and Con8 Collective. In 2015, Kyra moved to Calgary, AB, where she discovered new movement philosophies that enriched her practice. She was introduced to 5Rhythms, Ecstatic Dance, Authentic Movement and meditative breath work, and began diving into the concepts of each technique. Kyra recently co-choreographed and performed Intrinsic, a full-length contemporary dance show with Quinn Kliewer. The show was performed in November 2017, in conjunction with Next Stage at the Theatre Junction Grand. As a dancer Newton has performed in the Annual Alberta Dance Festival, with Corps Bara Dance Theatre and with La Caravan Dance Theatre in the World Premiere of Fihi Ma Fihi. Her choreography has been presented together with W&M Dance Projects under their Artist in Residency program, at the Ignite! Festival of Emerging Artists and at local events throughout the city. As the new Artistic Director of MoMo Dance Theatre, Kyra is looking forward to expanding the company's vision and working together with the ensemble members to create a performance piece in the upcoming season.
