Spirited steps in Old Saybrook
Old Saybrook — Dancers with the Eastern Connecticut Ballet rehearse the Halloween Waltz act of their annual Ballet Spooktacular show Friday at The Katharine Hepburn Performing Arts Center.
The show will be performed twice each on Saturday and Sunday at The Kate, and features three acts: Halloween Waltz, Dancing Bones and The Sorcerer's Apprentice. This is the fifth year of the show, which is the brainchild of ECB artistic director Gloria Govrin.
Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to the performances and after the show, they will parade onstage, trick-or-treat throughout the decorated theater and pose for photographs with the dancers.
