The Dance History Project

Dance in Connecticut

Starting in 2014, the Connecticut Dance Alliance embarked on a major initiative, the Dance History Project: Dance in Connecticut with the goal of sharing Connecticut’s rich dance heritage and demonstrating the valuable contribution the state-wide dance community has made to the state’s cultural vitality. The three phase project was designed to be as inclusive as possible in terms of the definition of dance – from young people participating in recitals to professional dance performances in prestigious venues, traditional dance groups to solo dancing, social dance to academy dance etc. Early in the planning, the project team invited the Connecticut Historical Society to be a partner and it became an enthusiastic and supportive partner in this project as a resource and host of the opening of the touring exhibition, Connecticut Dances –– A Visual History exhibition.
