About Farm to Ballet: The Farm to Ballet Project is a dance project intended to celebrate Vermont’s farming culture while expanding classical ballet’s audience.  

The project, directed by Chatch Pregger, is a full length production that reinterprets classical ballet choreography to tell the story of a Vermont farm from Spring to Fall. The production starts with the geese returning for the Spring and then the farmer planning out the farm. The subsequent pieces move through the stages of planting, irrigating, tending and then harvesting the farm’s produce. The farmer takes a detour from the crops to work with the animals and celebrate their contributions to our local foods. The production wraps up with a celebratory farmshare pick-up scene before the geese fly back south for the Winter.
