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.

Protect your Data Privacy

Mine/Field encourages you to protect yourself — and vulnerable communities you may be connected to — because no one else will do it for you! (Additionally we ask you to consider your actions online as seriously as you may consider your IRL ones.) 

Tips from our very own stage manager (who works in digital security)

  1. Backup your data (CrashPlan)
  2. Block ads (AdBlock Plus)*
  3. Install anti-virus software and keep it up to date (Avast)
  4. Keep software up to date
  5. Always use HTTPS (HTTPS Everywhere)
  6. Protect yourself from tracking (Privacy Badger)
  7. Encrypt your devices, use a lock screen on your phone, use multi-factor authentication (more info below [on mobile] or to the right [on desktop])
  8. Use better passwords (XKCD, LastPass)
  9. Tape over your webcam (or use a BandAid)

*Our journalism analyst feels compelled to add: UNLESS you want your real news sites to actually make money and keep doing journalism, yknow.

We are grateful to contacts on the ground in Minneapolis that helped us with props!
