It Takes Two – GroundWorks DanceTheater’s annual gala – is about fun as much as it is an opportunity to make change in our community and beyond. The event’s purpose is to raise funds for GroundWorks’ education programs – a central part of our organization’s mission. Our evolving philosophy of creating opportunities for people to experience dance in different and meaningful ways, in addition to our performances, pushes us to create experiences to witness, respond to and participate in movement/dance programs. These educational programs also open the door for participants to meet new people in the community, providing them with relationship-building exchanges. Most of all, we see our place in the community as connectors – not only to new artistic experiences, ideas and imagination – but also to each other. Proceeds from our gala ticket sales as well as the online voting process (both listed below) make our work in the community possible!
