Welcome to GroundShare
GroundShare Arts Alliance is where dance meets storytelling. Under the direction of Amanda Whiteman, we use dance to explore self, community, and the world in a collaborative process that fosters connection and creativity.
Students have the opportunity to work with teaching artists and performers to explore themes that resonate in their own lives. Past themes include reflections on the pandemic, coping with change, our connections with each other, and overcoming fears. These year long explorations culminate in an original dance theatre production, highlighting the work of our students and teaching artists. Steeped in the tradition of American Modern Dance, GroundShare Arts alliance brings dancers of all ages who bring our individual and unique expressions of self to the group experience.
Join our community of dancers and storytellers
GroundShare’s Dance Theatre is made up of an adult and youth ensemble that work together to choreograph the June production. This full-year commitment is designed to provide students with technical grounding in modern dance while developing skills in theatrical storytelling and dance choreography.
Groundshare Arts offers three classes for ensemble members. These classes are designed to provide students with technical grounding while developing skills in theatrical storytelling and dance choreography. Youth ensemble classes are yearlong, while the adult class is offered in the spring semester.
On June 9th and 10th, Groundshare Arts will present its 2023 Production, In Time, at Center Stage in Reston, VA. With original works inspired by nature, family history, and rites of passage, this production explores how time changes us and how we can be present in the midst of that change.
