Connecticut Ballet’s Summer Dance Caravan came to Hartford with another exciting evening of classical and contemporary ballets. Artistic Director Brett Raphael served as narrator as the company’s professional dancers dazzled and delighted the over 500 guests.
A special feature of this year’s performance was the US debut of Ballet Brio de Bayamon from Puerto Rico. Directed by award-winning choreographer Rodney Rivera, the company presented ‘Bomraiz,’ a piece celebrating Afro-Puertorican dance and music.
