About Our Auction
From Swing dancing in the 1940s to Flossing in 2018, we are celebrating the way in which performing artists have expressed themselves over the decades. With our own light hearted twist our spring recital explores how dance, music and theater has the uncanny ability to capture the essence of an era and to allow a healthy expression of values and beliefs. This auction will help keep Taber Merchant Memorial Scholarship Fund available to the many eager students, allowing us to welcome participants from all walks of life into our weekly classes.
About Green Mountain Performing Arts
Green Mountain Performing Arts (GMPA), located in Waterbury, Vermont, is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community arts center established in 2011. Its mission is to enhance community cultural vitality by providing fully accessible dance, theatre and music education in a non-competitive and supportive environment to people of all ages, with a focus on children and youth.
All programming at GMPA supports confidence, creativity and community. GMPA programs are built on the belief that students who have the opportunity to experience the performing arts in a joyful and creative way in their youth, will make them a part of their lives forever. Using the arts as the foundation for building a positive peer culture provides students invaluable lessons in community and social connectedness, while sparking their creativity and revealing talents that may not otherwise be nurtured.
A key aspect of GMPA’s programming and mission is to make the performing arts accessible through low-cost events and tuition assistance. Beyond traditional studio-based classes, GMPA has made it a priority to take the arts to the children and our community. By offering in-school, after school and day camp experiences for children in preschool through high school - community gatherings and arts festivals - we are able to fulfill our mission to bring the arts to students of all abilities, socio-economic classes and cultural backgrounds.
