When Erika Schmidt set out to organize the inaugural DanceFest Vermont!, she aimed to create a space where members of communities across the state could connect with contemporary dance. Now in its third year, this art-in-motion showcase features works by 13 Green Mountain State choreographers, including Schmidt, Paul Besaw, Christal Brown and Jessie Owens. In collaboration with dancers, musicians, and lighting and costume designers, these movers and shakers draw viewers into pieces that explore relationships, time, memory and more. Audience members who want to get in on the action can find their footing in two master classes taught by accomplished dancers Mucuy Bolles and Hannah Satterlee.
