The stop/time dance theater company was founded by Darlene Zoller twenty years ago for dancers who did not choose dance as a profession but still had the passion and drive to perform. They are the resident dance company of Playhouse on Park and will present their 18th annual show,  “Stop TIME Dance Machine,” from March 22 to April 2.

Hartford Underground, a subsidiary of the Connecticut Swing Dance Society, is a group of enthusiastic swing dancers who provide the opportunity for vintage swing dancing in the Greater Hartford area.
