The Hartford Dance Collective presents "Empowered Through Movement"

The Hartford Dance Collective presents "Empowered Through Movement"


The Hartford Dance Collective




Monday, March 1, 2021 - 6:00pm weekly through March 29, 2021



The Hartford Dance Collective

Empowered Through Movement is a dance film series presented on Monday evenings at 6PM EST during the course of Women’s Month (March) on the Hartford Dance Collective’s YouTube page. Each vignette, based on a theme of female empowerment, shows virtual audiences an inside look on what makes us feel empowered. During this uncertain and bizarre time in our lives, we have collaborated to bring dance performance to film and show more up close and personal stories through movement.

This series is sponsored by the Greater Hartford Arts Council and Travelers Insurance. 

When we started the Collective, a major goal of ours was - and still is - to advocate for female choreographers and dancers to give them opportunities within a male-dominated industry. That being said, we hold the belief that gender is fluid, and for some even undefinable. When we say “woman”, we use it as a term for anyone who relates or connects to being a woman in some way. We are aware that some women are more privileged than others. Trans women and women of color are underrepresented and may not have as many opportunities as others and it is extremely important for us to be a collective that represents all types of women.
