Dancing to the beat of the seasons

The Farm to Ballet Project kicked off its second season with a special performance at Philo Ridge Farm in Charlotte celebrating the beauty of rural Vermont with the music of Vivaldi. Returning dancer Charlotte Hardie described the excitement of gathering a “group of creative and focused artists” to dance outside together, after many months of preparation. “I loved seeing the community, full of friends and fellow Vermonters,” said Hardie.

Seriously funny 

When Charlotter Woody Keppel takes the stage in Burlington during this weekend’s Festival of Fools, he will be wearing many hats. As co-founder and artistic director of the event, which celebrates its 9th year from July 29-31, Keppel understands how vital a citywide festival is to the social and economic health of Vermont. And as a performer Keppel is acutely—and reverently—aware of the important roles that comedy and spectacle play in our society.
