Dance Collective


We are dancemakers, story tellers, and thinkers, seeking to raise the profile of modern dance in D.C. Through collaboration and performance, we challenge our bodies and minds to create meaningful art that evokes emotion and makes audiences think. We value a collective process that draws together people from diverse artistic backgrounds. We are Glade Dance Collective.

Help send Glade on Tour

Glade is heading out of town! Our 2015 work, Mine/Field, continues to offer a fruitful exploration of the ways data collection and internet privacy play out in our lives. So:

  • We are taking Mine/Field to the Minnesota Fringe Festival in Minneapolis
  • We'll take a couple of D.C. dancers along with us (let us know if you’re interested in joining us)
  • We'll incorporate local Minneapolis dancers as well!

Transporting our production halfway across the country will take more than effort and ingenuity -- it will also take plenty of cash. Join us at one of our Who's Watching Whom event series, or if you want to help us get a head start toward our fundraising goal -- it will cost about $700 per dancer for travel, lodging, and food -- and help us spend more time rehearsing than fundraising -- we welcome your donations via PayPal here!

The Collective is known for its collaborative work that delves into seemingly ordinary aspects of life... Every moment is an opportunity for emotional or critical engagement.
