Dance at GIA 2012

I’m so proud to be the Director of the Vermont Governor’s Institute on the Arts, a 2-week enrichment program for high school students celebrating its 29th year in 2011! This year we had classes in music, visual and material arts, theater, writing, and dance. Here’s a wonderful video sampling of what these young Vermonters got out of their dance class with faculty member Colleen Leonardi!
