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.

Who's Watching Whom

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're taking two D.C. dancers along with 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. Our fundraising goal is to cover costs -- about $700 per dancer for travel, lodging, and food. Want to help us spend more time rehearsing than fundraising? We welcome your donations via the button below!

What's your secret?

Anonymous answers from two years of collecting secrets for Mine/Field

Tell us a time you told someone else's secret.

"Ha, nice try." 

"I have offered more information in explanation of a request or action than I should have and embarrassed a companion."

"I accidentally spilled the beans about a surprise baby shower!"

My privacy was violated when:

"My mother stole my gmail password." 

One time I snooped and saw/heard: 

"S&M Polaroid of my friend!"

"Another teacher filled out their report cards at least a month in advance."

What's the creepiest thing that happened to you on the Internet?

"I tried to get a story for free but got a Trojan virus instead."
