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.

Music & dance collide: rogue collective

we all just get to be artists together, with no boundaries
— Kaitlin Moreno, rogue collective

rogue collective, in many ways, is the musician twin to Glade. 

Dedicated to exploring "the gap" between classical music and its culture, rogue collective describes themselves as from the newest generation of conservatory trained musicians. Glade considers itself the newest generation of art-makers!

rogue values collaboration, original composition, improvisation and performance. These four elements feature prominently in Glade's work

Musicians Kaitlin Moreno, Alexa Cantalupo, Troy Pyror, and Erin Snedecor believe in the power of collaboration and unconventional programming to help to bring the sounds, expressions and timbres of classical music to more audiences.

rogue has lots of experience working with dancers and movers. They explained to us how it is different than collaborating with other musicians.

"The nature of how dance is made and shared is so different than music. We rarely encounter music performers who also create (compose) their own works, but in any dance education creation is part of the deal," Kaitlin said. 

"As a result of this different training, dancers rehearse in a much different way than musicians. rogue collective loves collaborating with dancers because then we get to create too! In the end we all just get to be artists together, with no boundaries in our way."

Glade is excited to see rogue perform at this Tuesday, April 12 at the Black Squirrel in Adams Morgan! Join us!
