The 2020 Vermont Dance Alliance Gala presented in partnership with Middlebury Town Hall Theater features premiere works by five diverse Vermont choreographers from the Vermont Dance Alliance! Choreographers include Nicole Dagesse, Laurel Jenkins, Elizabeth Kurylo, Bridget Struthers and Julie Peoples-Clark. Each piece is unique in style and artistry, showcasing the diverse dance culture that exists throughout the state of Vermont! The gala has a 4 year history (Lost Nation Theater in Montpelier, Green Mountain College in Poultney, Highland Center for the Arts in Greensboro and now Middlebury Town Hall Theater in Middlebury). VDA intentionally moves around the state to develop new audiences, and help spark inspiration and dance appreciation throughout VT.

The annual gala is family friendly, accessible and open to all. We will feature two performances, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7pm, and workshops for the public on Saturday! More details coming soon!

The Vermont Dance Alliance is a public platform for dance in Vermont. We shine a light on what is happening with dance throughout the state, as well as make new opportunities come to life. We use dance to provide a common language, encourage freedom of expression and empowerment, and build and create communities that share and learn together. Please visit to join the movement!

  • Gala Works In Progress Showing

In an effort to both advance the artists’ works during their creation process, as well as gain momentum with Vermont audiences for the big performance, each year we offer a mid-process showing for the public. Join us on March 22nd for the Gala Works in Progress showing at 2pm, followed by a facilitated feedback conversation with Toby MacNutt!
