Sonia Plumb Dance Company's DANCE IN THE PARKS Will Bring Free Classes and Performances To Hartford's Park System

Sonia Plumb Dance Company (SPDC) announced today a full line-up of Dance in the Parks classes and performances in July and August. The award-winning dance company will be offering a free community event every Thursday in a Hartford park this summer.

SPDC Artistic Director Sonia Plumb states, "We are always striving to make dance accessible to everyone. These Dance in the Parks classes and performances are the ultimate in making dance equitable, inclusive, participatory, and enjoyable. We hope families from the city and the suburbs will pack a picnic, bring a blanket or chairs, try a dance class, enjoy a professional performance, and stay for a short question and answer with the artists."

For each of the below-dates, family-friendly dance classes start at 5:00 followed by a performance by SPDC's professional dancers scheduled for 6:30pm. Each program will include modern dance repertory and a sneak peek at Curving Into the Light, a SPDC work in progress about coming out of isolation, in collaboration with Cuatro Puntos. The full performance of Curving Into the Light will be held at the Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington this September.
