HCD presents the familiar tale of Snow White, an old story that comes to life, in this new ballet with original music by Kermit Poling of Shreveport, Louisiana. Poling’s Snow White was commissioned and premiered by the Shreveport Metropolitan Ballet in 2003. The work will premiere in Hartford with choreography by Samantha Dunster, artistic director and chair of the Dance Department at The Hartt School Community Division. Poling will travel to Hartford to conduct a live orchestra for the production.
Snow White features 154 dancers ranging from ages 5 to 17 from Hartt’s Pre-Professional, Foundation, and Children’s Ballet programs. HCD’s pre-professional trainees Kathryn Manger and Gabrielle Collins share the role of Snow White. Guest artist Eddy Tovar dances the role of the Prince.

The Hartt School Community Division of the University of Hartford has been bringing dance performances to the families and communities of the Greater Hartford region for years. Recent productions have included the sell-out performance of Coppelia (July 2012) and The Nutcracker (December 2012). In June 2013, HCD begins a new tradition with Snow White, adding another fully staged production to its seasonal performances.
