Judy Dworin Celebrates 25 Years of Engaging the Community through the Arts

Slideshow: Hartford Students Come to Trinity for There’s No Place Like the Parkville Galaxy!

Hartford, CT, June 8, 2015 – Through the Judy Dworin Performance Project (JDPP), Judy Dworin ’70, professor of theater and dance, uses the arts to engage the community and create positive change. Now celebrating the Project’s 25th anniversary, Dworin’s recent Lighthouse performance was recently featured by the Hartford Courant. Dworin was among the faculty members honored at a recent retiree celebration, but will remain active at Trinity with the Judy Dworin Performance Project.

This spring, through JDPP's Moving Matters! Residency Program, Associate Artistic Director Kathy Borteck Gersten, who has run the Parkville program for the last nineteen years, welcomed 550 students from the Parkville Community School to Trinity’s campus for a multi-arts performance of dance, music, and song called There’s No Place Like the Parkville Galaxy! Among the teachers accompanying their students to Trinity was Trinity alum Carlos Velazquez ’14, who nineteen years ago was among the first Parkville students to participate in the program and later participated in the program as a Trinity student. On April 30, he returned to Trinity’s campus with a new generation of Hartford students.
