Common Ground Dance Company dancers come from Baltimore County and beyond to share their passion for the art of dance and ask you to join them for the company’s 16th season of supporting dance and dancers in Maryland. The concert will create an opportunity for young dancers to perform alongside Common Ground Dance Company. Performances will be given 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28, and 2 pm. Sunday, Mar. 1 in the Center for the Arts, CCBC Catonsville, 800 South Rolling Road, Baltimore, Md. Common Ground Dance Company’s mission includes mentoring young dancers, as well as a commitment to making dance accessible for all ages. CGDC’s Annual Concert will feature both CGDC and student companies from area high schools and dance studios. This year, a portion of the proceeds from our Annual Concert will go toward revitalizing “Bridge to a Common Ground,” CGDC’s partnership in education. The company plans to earmark funds to extend itself into school outreach, helping to keep an artistic presence, with dance at its focus, in education. It also looks forward to creating workshops and master classes for dance students involved in our concert. This season Common Ground presents modern and contemporary works, as well as ballet and musical theater, from area choreographers: Melinda Blomquist, Anne O’Brien, Kristi Schaffner, and Lindsay Stallings. Additionally, the company will present works from its repertoire, choreographed by Helanius Wilkins, Deborah Engerman, and Morgan Grubola. Dancing with Common Ground this year are: Erin Gum, Jennifer Hegner, Lauren Hepner, Dyana Janoscak, Janelle Kornecki, Sylvia Nelson, Renée Newberry, Lindsay Stallings, and Maria Vitery. CGDC’s Annual Concert continues to gain interest from the community, and we are once again looking forward to hosting a concert of talented artists from Baltimore and the surrounding areas, including: ● Anne Arundel Community College ● Carver Center for the Arts and Technology ● Chesapeake High School, Anne Arundel County ● Community College of Baltimore County ● Dance Connections ● Dancemoves Studio of Dance Troupe ● Design in Motion Dance Studio ● Experimental Movement Concepts ● Friends School of Baltimore ● Teelin Irish Dance Company
