Vermont Dance Alliance believes that dance is a transformational art form. By providing a network of resources for dance artists and educational opportunities for movers and audiences, we expand the visibility and accessibility of dance in Vermont and bolster the creative economy of the state.
The Vermont Dance Alliance is a foundation for Vermont dancers and a public platform for dance in Vermont. The alliance cultivates deeper relationships between its members, and helps to foster a thriving artistic community throughout the state.
The project began in June, 2016 as a volunteer-run effort to gain insight into what was happening in dance in 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 here in the state.
VDA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, supported by its membership system, which is comprised of dance artists, service partners, patrons, and sponsors, each of whom play a vital role in our ecosystem.
The VDA administration supports dance artists of all genres, educates the public, and brings high quality events to the local community.
Dancers, service providers, and dance enthusiasts of all genres are encouraged to join the Vermont Dance Alliance to become the voice of dance in Vermont.
