A dance was coreagraphed. Eek. I didn't think I could learn it. But I showed up and did my best, and loved every minute of it. We started on the Statehouse lawn in Montpelier. And then took over the main intersection. Video here. I then traveled to Burlington to partake in a parade and more festivities.
I am so grateful.
I was most inspired by my friend who works with youth, who taught her students the dance. Their presence and buy-in was so inspiring. It was also inspiring that a group of people in Montpelier meet many times before the protest to learn the dance. Wow. Just wow. Thank you! What a great community to be a part of.
