5 Amazing Years!  Wahoo! Thank You!

Southern Vermont Dance Festival has just completed it’s 5th annual festival! We had 2 Gala’s at the Historic Latchis Theater, 2 Performances in the newly renovated Stone Church, A Midsummer Night’s Picnic and Promenade at Scott Farm, 113 Classes in nearly every genre and dozens of free community events at the River Garden and in Pliny Park.  More people then ever came from every corner of this country and beyond to take classes, perform and teach!  The local community stepped up to contribute, host dancers in their home and come enjoy the festival!  What an amazing way to enter our 5th year!

SVDF gained a lot of traction this season and because of that it grew!  That is so amazing!  However, that growth needs to be met with a stronger team.  We need to hire people and begin to offer stipends to our artists in order to sustain that growth and make the most of it for the dance world and the community.  Because of that we are launching our “5 Years and Going Forward Campaign”  We are asking everyone to become part of the team by donating, sharing the campaign and helping us spread the word about this amazing festival!  We want our development to meet our growth!  Will you pledge your support to another amazing 5 years?
