Every spring, the Hartt School Community Division (HCD) presents HarttWorks, a multi-genre music and dance performance at the University of Hartford's Millard Auditorium, 200 Bloomfield Avenue, West Hartford. HarttWorks brings together HCD's most accomplished musicians and dancers in an evening of true collaboration. Through this performance, our students demonstrate the true culmination of an HCD education.

Spring Festival

Spring Festival is a unique performance including all HCD dancers.

Spring Festival includes performances of the Classical Ballet Program and Youth Program. A variety of performances take place over the course of one weekend in both Robert's Theater and Millard Auditorium. All performances are open to the public! 

Together, we can ensure the gift of an unparalleled performing arts education is available to all.
