Tanner Dance Celebrates 75 Years

Welcome to the 75th Anniversary of the Tanner Dance Program! This is a year for our entire community to remember, celebrate and support the incredible legacy that Virginia Tanner began in 1949. Since that time Tanner Dance has brought the joy and positive influence of the arts into the lives of more than one million young people. Please join us for a wonderful season of performances and events designed to celebrate the artistry of our many programs and connect with our community.

The Tanner Dance Program’s Tipping Point Dance Company presents FRAMEWORK, an evening length piece choreographed by Diana Timothy and the Tipping Point dancers with original music by Wachira Waigwa-Stone. FRAMEWORK explores the structures we live in: their purpose, what they symbolize to us, and how they shape our life experiences.
