Middlebury’s Big Action Performance Ensemble, aka Big APE, is among the democratic troupes that believe everyone can dance. And they’re putting that philosophy to practice with auditions for a community and public art project called, um, “Everyone Can Dance.” It will be performed next spring in three Vermont venues.

Big APE artistic director Tiffany Rhynard, who is also an artist-in-residence at Middlebury College, says she’s looking for up to three “core dancers,” who will be able to work intensively on new and old pieces over the coming year, and for a “large group of dancers/movers/performers” (here’s where we non-dance-trained types fit in) to participate in the community project. So step to it.
