Ballet in Vermont is alive and well

Burlington, Vermont – June 1, 2011

Ballet is considered the oldest and most disciplined form of dance.  It began in the 1400's in Europe during Louis the 14th's reign.  It arrived in this country at the end of World War Two.

The Vermont Ballet Theater School hasn't been around quite that long.  It was founded about 30-years.  It has over 3-hundred students at two locations in Essex and Shelburne. 

Michele Fodero is with the Vermont Ballet Theater.  Also here tonight one of her students Kylie Edwards.  Kylie is 14 and has been dancing since she was just four years old.
