The performance also includes original group works created by the senior class using concepts inspired by the struggles we face when stricken with the realities of life, such as abandonment, anxiety, entering a new chapter of life, and unification. Two of the evening's works feature collaborations with students from Hartt's Instrumental Studies Division and the Hartford Arts School.

Dance students performing in DIVULGE include Abby Price of Chester, CT; Hayley Descavich of Greenfield, MA; Luke Bermingham of East Granby, CT; Michele Lee of Langhorne, PA; Tia Perry of Suffield, CT; and Emily Campanelli of East Hartford, CT.
