The Vermont Dance Alliance (VDA) is a springboard for Vermont dancers and a public platform for dance in Vermont. The VDA acts as an agency that plans and produces events, cultivates depth in relationships between dance artists of all genres, educates the public, and brings high quality events to our communities statewide. Our outreach includes senior citizens, children, individuals with disabilities, and low income citizens. The project began in June, 2016 as a volunteer-run effort to gain insight into the existing dance opportunities, and dance needs, throughout Vermont. Because of the interests of the participating volunteers, the focus was primarily on contemporary dance. After a year of successful networking, gathering, and producing as a team, the vision expanded to include all dance forms that are represented throughout the state. We found that Vermont dancers represent over 30 different genres of dance, from Ballet to Breaking, from Improvisation to Brazilian dance. VDA was founded to unite dancers across the state, and prove the power of dance in bonding people and connecting communities. VDA aims to help empower personal expression and nurture our collective whole.
