GroundShare Arts

Formerly GroundWorks Dance Ensemble of Northern Virginia.

GroundShare Arts Alliance, under the direction of Amanda Whiteman, is a collection of teaching artists, performers and arts integration educators working to bring collaborative performing arts experiences to the community.  Through classes, workshops, performances and residencies our professional artists work alongside students to create and explore the artistic process together.


All life is connected. Millions of pieces interacting and reacting to form, even for the briefest of moments on time’s landscape, shape, design, relationship, community.

GroundShare Arts, along with guest artists DanceArt Theater and Bahay Base, present a program of dance theatre created by artists of all ages. Together, we explore our interconnected relationships and the deeply integrated world around us.
