Spectrum in Motion is dedicated to people of color and the American experience. Founded 30 years ago by Olivia Davis, the premise of Spectrum is that dance should once again be a part of everyday life, should help to tell and share life stories, and should embrace all people. The Spectrum body of work speaks to shared histories and unique cultural traditions. The company performs annually at The Boar’s Head and Yule Log Festival at Asylum Hill Congregational Church, and has had residency programs at Smith College, West Hartford Public Schools, and Kinsella Arts Magnet School in Hartford. Spectrum has performed in several festivals, including the Annual 5 X 5 Dance Festival at the University Saint Joseph, and at Provincetown Festivals.
