For the third year in a row, Middlesex Community College will host the Connecticut Ballet’s Summer Dance Caravan on Sunday, July 21 at 2:00 p.m.
Narrated by Artistic Director Brett Raphael, this year’s program is entitled ‘Fabulous Duets for a Summer Day’ featuring exciting classical and contemporary works performed by the company’s stellar professional dancers.

"We at Middlesex are thrilled to have the Connecticut Ballet perform here for free,” said Professor John Shafer, who helped coordinate this event.  “It is a terrific opportunity for people in the community who have never seen a ballet performance before to experience a sample of what it's like — the beauty, grace, and style. They may discover that they really like it.  The performance offers short segments of a variety of different types of ballet and dance styles, from classical to modern, by very talented, professional-level artists."

The performance is free and will be held in Chapman Hall at 100 Training Hill Road, Middletown. The event is also sponsored by the Middletown Commission on the Arts, Price Chopper, and Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts. For more information, visit
