Being a Vaud-Villities performer for the past 10 years has been a joy! Without much previous theater experience, I’ve learned to dance, sing and be a comedian! Best part of it all is contributing to the creative process to create a show from costumes, to props, to sets, script, fundraising and even serving on the board! What is even more warming than the applause? Great friendships that I’ve made!

As a member of Vaud-Villities, I can be with my friends, make new friends and feel at home no matter where we perform. I love being a part of an organization that welcomes people of all ages and diversity.

Nothing greater than taking the stage with 100 people you call family. It's been sheer joy to be a part of this organization since 2007 as a dancer, choreographer, youth leader, dance manager, board member and board chair. Come join our family!
