The Middlebury College Dance Program seeks to develop the creative artist and artist/scholar through critical study and regular practice in contemporary, world dance techniques; improvisation and choreography; history, theory, and cultural studies; experiential anatomy and kinesiology; and performance. Along with classes, the Middlebury Dance Program hosts a series of master classes and workshops that are free and open to the public. Artists are brought in from all over the world to share their perspective and put into practice the notion that Movement Matters.

Participating artists

Lida is an accomplished dancer, choreographer and spoken word artist. Since 2006, she has created original solo, duet and group work; merging storytelling, dance and visual art to create captivating and poignant performances that have taken place on and off the stage. Lida has traveled nationally and internationally as a performer and educator working with diverse populations in conventional and unconventional settings. In 2011, she earned a Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College with a focus on the transformative power of the expressive arts. Lida develops and creates dances that are quirky, provocative, and physically honest. Lida challenges herself and her audiences to participate in dance as an open dialogue. Her art and her choreography are creations which tell stories, ask questions, explore limits, and celebrate beauty in what is awkward, raw, and vulnerable. She is inspired by the human capacity to cope, to imagine and to transform. Her work is informed by wilderness, socioeconomic divides, disabilities, access, the search for place or home, the magical and the quiet details of everyday life. Lida is currently teaching in the dance department at Middlebury College.
