Connecticut Ballet’s Summer Dance Caravan comes to Hartford with another exciting evening of classical and contemporary ballets. Artistic Director Brett Raphael serves as narrator as the company’s professional dancers dazzle and delight guests.

This year's theme: Danza! A Celebration of Latin Choreographers  

OPENING ACT:
Hartford's own modern dance company, dancEnlight (Artistic Director: Lorelei Chang)

The four Latin choreographers are:
Alberto Alonso from Cuba
Rodney Rivera from Puerto Rico
Daniel Fetecua-Soto from Colombia
Marcos Vedoveto from Brazil

Three of the works are world premieres and the Alonso work is a revival of a duet called 'Carmen Suite' which he created for the Bolshoi Ballet's Maya Plisetskaya.

The company dancers are from Japan, Brazil, Cuba, Ukraine, Colombia, (Soviet) Georgia, New York, and Connecticut -- quite an international cultural event!
