A UVM Dance Program spring tradition, Dancing Uphill highlights UVM dance student performers in guest artist, faculty, and student choreography. This year, the program is thrilled to welcome choreographers Lois Trombley and Polly Motley, renowned and talented Vermont dance-makers, in work created on UVM students, as well as dance faculty choreographers Lynn Ellen Schimoler and Clare Byrne. In addition, UVM student musicians and composers have been invited to co-create with the choreographers' process.
