new logo released on world ballet day

Out of the Box and Onto the Stage

Connecticut Theater Dance Company is excited to announce its new logo. Inspired by the Company’s mission to make classical ballet accessible to contemporary audiences, the name of the company is coming out of the box, paving new paths, pushing the walls of the mundane square and stretching beyond the imaginable.


Artistic Director, Michelle Sperry, together with the creative team from Little Big Brands, John Nunziato and Pamela Long, worked to develop a logo that was classical in structure and creative in color and contemporary design—a new brand that reflects the dancers' artistry and intrigues audiences. 


Renowned choreographer Rodney Rivera and company resident choreographer Alejandro Ulloa now have a logo that is reflective of their work: clean lines with beautiful shape that burst onto stages.


Committed to always bringing new works that go beyond the ordinary, Connecticut Theater Dance Company opens its 2018–19 season with the premier of Drosselmeyer, The Toymaker’s Story, an original holiday ballet explaining a fictional story of how the legendary toymaker came to be inspired to create a magical Nutcracker.

Connecticut Theater Dance Company will continue to inspire joy, empathy and awareness through understandable choreography, eliciting deep emotion, pensive thought and raising personal questions.
