Mabuhay and hello everyone! Join us for this celebratory weekend of events! 

Spectrum in Motion Dance Theatre Ensemble, a professional modern dance company and Community Conservatory, has been making dances, raising dancers, and building community by being a place where every body, regardless of race, class, gender, age, ability, or experience is welcomed to dance since 1982. Our roots run deep. We have been serving the Hartford / GH Region for over 25 years with the mission of creating a sustainable home to present dance and develop equitable access to dance education for emerging artists and future leaders. 

This fundraising weekend of events is to meet you where you are, at home. All proceeds benefit the continuous work of our Community Conservatory and Professional Dance Company, particularly our 6-week summer dance intensive, Instruments of Culture.
