PORCH VIEW DANCES
Real people dancing in real spaces
Conceived by Karen Kaeja and further developed with Allen Kaeja
Porch View Dances: Real People Dancing In Real Spaces (PVD) is an award-winning community dance event that engages everyday people as creators, storytellers and performers – many of whom have never danced before. Audience members travel from house to house to see new dance works created with professional choreographers and performed by local families on the porches and front yards of their own homes.
Led by a tour guide through the winding streets of Seaton Village, audiences watch as the stories of the neighborhood unfold through music and dance. The event ends in Vermont Square Park where the audience members are invited to participate in a gentle group dance known as a Flock Landing, welcoming to all ages, skill levels and abilities!
