Avant Vermont Dance uses movement to re-imagine community and engage the public in meaningful art-making. 

Our events are staged at our community's doorstep, with admission by optional donation, making them accessible to those who may otherwise face barriers to attending live performances. We welcome our audience to become part of the experience through our incorporation of interactive art-making opportunities. We encourage our community to think about spaces in different ways as we imbue them with vibrancy. 

By cultivating live dance in Southern Vermont, we forge opportunities for regional dancers, choreographers, artists, and musicians to showcase their work; create partnerships with local organizations and organizations; and draw positive attention and art-focused visitors to our region. 

Avant Vermont Dance is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
