Spring into spring in CT with five big modern and classical dance shows

Call them dances to spring. The winter has been largely subdued, with some plants, trees and mosses never succumbing to the chill. That is the same sort of freshness, vitality and perseverance that marks modern dance in Connecticut this year.

The state has been a key stop for nationally touring dance troupes for a century or more, boasting some excellent dance-friendly stages. Through such institutions as the Wadsworth Atheneum, Connecticut College, Wesleyan University, the Hartt School and the University of Saint Joseph, modern dance has been promoted and encouraged for decades. Several major dance companies have settled in Connecticut, including the internationally renowned dance/movement troupes Pilobolus and MOMIX.

Dance in Connecticut has already gotten off to a great start in 2024, including two recent performances by the local troupe Scapegoat Garden West Hartford’s Ballet Theater Company.

February and March are a high spot of the dance year. Here are five big shows to look forward to.
