In 2016, dancer Hanna Satterlee (pictured) made a commitment to cultivating connections among Green Mountain State dancers. The result is the Vermont Dance Alliance, a network of professional dance artists working together to share their craft throughout the state. Months of workshops, fundraisers and a retreat culminate in the upcoming Winter Dance Gala. Two evening performances at Montpelier City Hall Auditorium showcase contemporary works by state and regional choreographers Nicole Dagesse, Scotty Hardwig, Christine Harris and Paul Besaw. Two contemporary dance master classes round out a weekend of movement aimed at striking a creative spark in the darkness of winter.
