Imagine for a minute that you popped into the general store to get a bottle of apple juice and a couple people struck up a conversation with you about dancing. And then they danced for you. And filmed it all. This might have happened to you sometime during the last month.
Alex Ketley is a dancer, teacher, freelance choreographer, and the director of a contemporary dance company based in San Francisco called The Foundry. He’s doing a residency with Vermont Performance Lab for a project called No Hero Vermont, which takes a look at we regular people’s relationship with dance. That’s the “no hero” part — you don’t have to be in the Bolshoi to be a dancer.
