The Vanaver Caravan, situated in the Hudson Valley, NY, is a world touring company of dancers and musicians that presents a variety of entertaining and informative programs that synthesize various ethnic and regional styles, ranging from Appalachian clogging to flamenco with a range of modern theatre techniques.
Peace is an ongoing process.
We recognize that cultural and
traditional differences can divide us.
Our mission is to celebrate those
differences through dance and music
in an effort to unite the world and
give hope to our communities.
Our current two touring shows are the multicultural journey, “EarthBeat!,” and “Pastures of Plenty – Woody Guthrie in Dance & Music.”
“The world famous (Jacob’s Pillow) international dance festival could not have found a more perfect attraction for families than the Vanaver Caravan. The 35 year old company delivered an astounding afternoon of international music and dance that pleased children and adults alike.”
–Larry Murray, Berkshire OnStage
“You’ll have to see The Vanaver Caravan to believe the high professional skills they have developed to bring out the old folk traditions – and then to see how they make the audience feel part of the show. In the end, everyone is on their feet cheering!”
“These highly versatile performers all eagerly explore every cranny of their art and create an evening alight with the joy of discovery!”
–Doris Hering, Dance Magazine
