Vermont Dancers Conversations

VT DANCERS where do we go from here?

VDA Executive Director Hanna Satterlee and board members Joy Madden and Jessie Owens are hosting two online meet-ups, Tuesdays June 23 and July 7th, both from 7-8pm EST. These meet-ups are a chance for all VT dancers to share ideas and have an open discussion for ways to connect. What has been difficult about navigating this time? What do we desire next? Who can each of us work with/collaborate with to achieve these goals?

Show up to listen, to share and to be together.
Open to all.

Participating artists

Choreographer and dancer Hanna Satterlee grew up in East Montpelier, Vermont and has spent many years traveling through dance, both nationally and internationally. Hanna has produced her own choreographic and dance installation work, and has performed with professional companies in Vienna Austria, Stolzenhagen Germany, Baltimore, Manhattan, Brooklyn, San Francisco and throughout the state of Vermont. In May 2017 Hanna founded the Vermont Dance Alliance, with a strong belief that the culture of dance will continue to flourish and expand throughout the edges of our beautiful state. Hanna serves as the Executive Director, both managing a statewide network of dance artists, partners and patrons, as well as producing and curating high-quality dance events and opportunities for the public. Hanna is as passionate for the form of dance as she is in connecting people to it. Hanna holds degrees and certifications in dance therapy, psychology, performance, choreography, vinyassa/yin/restorative yoga, non-profit management and arts integration. Hanna shares these passions as an intergenerational educator, interdisciplinary performer and collaborator, experimental curator and event producer.
