In reaction to dance competition reality shows that evaluate who
is qualified to dance, Big APE presents Everyone Can Dance
, a community-based performance project that celebrates the contagious allure of movement and the dynamic capabilities of the human body. The project includes a statewide tour and a four-week residency with Middlebury College students and local community participants. The company held several open rehearsals
so anyone could watch the performance take shape. Members of the company, as well as over 50 community members, suddenly appeared in front of the bank during Middlebury’s Chili Festival. The High-Tech Hoedown
was created by Tiffany Rhynard and members of the group.
