GroundWorks DanceTheater is IMAGINATION YOU CAN SEE. Critically celebrated as an "artistically significant" ensemble, GroundWorks explores the nuances of the human experience through unique and adventurous choreography. This exciting, eclectic work brings audiences face-to-face with fresh, fascinating performances of passion, intellect and humor.
From its Northeast Ohio base, this group of outstanding artists has introduced dance lovers and neophytes alike to an experience that is unconventional, yet deeply human and resonating. From performing in unusual settings, collaborating with composers of new music, and featuring live musicians onstage, GroundWorks enriches its work with subtle layers of meaning that deepen the impact and enjoyment for the audience.
Additionally, GroundWorks is committed to enriching the community through inspiring education outreach programs for which it has been recognized with funding from the Ohio Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
By never settling, by stretching even its own definition of what's possible in dance, the company, now in its 18th season, continues to grow and attract new audiences.
Nearing the end of its second decade, GroundWorks looks toward its future, having earned solid support and a growing audience base as more and more people discover what Donald Rosenburg in The Plain Dealer has described as the "smoldering brilliance" of one of "Cleveland's cultural gems."
