We are thrilled to introduce the first Junction Dance Festival, a three-day dance fest to expose and share with the community the wonderful talent of local amateur and professional dance artists. 40+ dancers from Vermont, New Hampshire and beyond will be gathering in downtown White River Junction for a whole week-end and will introduce you to their specific dance style and mode of choreographic expression.
Adrienne Maree Brown writes in Emergent Strategy, “what we attend to grows.” In spring, a time of awakening and growth, this holds a special truth. With turmoil both locally and globally, we must work to cultivate joy, we must choose to give our attention to joy. Yes, joy as smiles, as love, as possibility, as pure delight, and joy as encompassing our pain as well as our happiness. Our pain and sorrows in communion can birth a joy of collectiveness.

Vermont Dance Alliance (VDA) will present TRACES 2021 in three locations simultaneously: Montpelier, White River Junction & Burlington. Traces, a day of outdoor dance happenings, will celebrate the change into summer, dancing in public spaces, and connection of community. Traces began in 2016 as a day-long festival of outdoor dance happenings throughout downtown Burlington VT. As we move into our fifth annual Traces event, VDA has chosen the theme of water conservation. We believe that together we can make a difference in protecting the water in our communities.
