The professional dancers of the Connecticut Ballet (pictured) present their third annual Summer Dance Caravan at Riverfront Recapture, Mortensen Riverfront Plaza on Saturday, featuring classical and contemporary duets and narration by artistic director Brett Raphael. Local food vendors will be on hand for your grubbing needs, but feel free to bring a picnic supper along with your lawn chair, blanket or fancy-schmancy portable table. The opening act is Hartford's EQuilibrium Dance Theatre.
