CONNetic in Wonderland

Saturday, May 22: CONNetic Dance presents Alice in Wonderland @ The Carol Autorino Center, St. Joseph College, West Hartford

We've talked about CONNetic Dance a bunch around here, because we think that mentioning a dance company over and over again is gonna make us seem more cultured. We've called them "ballet hipsters" (which they love), and called them sexy and fashionable and fun (based on observations in the bar environment). This weekend we have a chance to see them really do their thing. Alice in Wonderland is an original contemporary production conceived (LOL - conceived) and directed by one C-Paine. We're big fans of Alice in Wonderland the book, which is hilarious, you should totes read it, and we also loved that 1980s TV miniseries version. We're sure CONNetic's dance production will manage to be more entertaining that Tim Burton abomination - seriously, yeah, Johnny Depp, hotness, but sometimes that ain't enough.

But seriously, this is a great local group to check out and this production sounds like family friendly fun, for those of you family types. See, we have something for everyone here. In addition to the core company, the production also includes a bunch of kiddos and other dancers from the Ballet Theatre Academy. Performances are at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
