Dancer and Choreographer, Lorien Fenton, created Dance Outre in 1990 and became a nonprofit organization in July of 1992. Her modern dance company produced performances in the San Francisco Bay and tours to Northern California and Oregon for a decade; featuring Ms. Fenton’s choreography along with other guest choreographers work.

In 1999 Dance Outre became a co-producer for COLLABORATION! Dance & Music (CD&M). This unique, annual event started in Marin County and after 5 years moved to San Francisco’s Cowell Theater and produced the event there for another 5 years.

CD&M’s mission is to bring choreographers/dancers and composers/musicians together creating a new dance and music perfomance where the composer/musicians is performing live on stage with the choreographer/dancers and in many cases physically woven into the choreography itself.

The board of DO is considering reviving CD&M in the near future as the flagship production to included in the project launch of Outre Media’s internet TV dance network. (See DO’s new projects below.)


Conscious Community Events (CCE) is a Dance Outre fiscally sponsored project. CCE works with “fringe” groups who offer semiars, workshops, traing courses, conferences, and more. CCE recently produced UFO CON 2021 online.
