Roots and Wings
Virginia Tanner's Dance Life and Legacy
By Mary-Elizabeth Manley
Contributions by Mary Ann Lee, Robert Bruce Bennett
Roots and Wings recounts Virginia Tanner’s remarkable career as a dance artist, educator, and founder of the University of Utah’s Tanner Dance Program. From her early experiences assisting at Evelyn Davis’s dance school in Washington, D.C., to the creation of the Tanner Dance Program at the University of Utah, her influence in the field was pervasive. She channeled children’s energy, sharpened their senses, and encouraged youthful, authentic dance expression. Tanner’s work endures, continuing to echo with sensitivity and spirit in the bodies of young dancers throughout the United States and abroad.
By revealing both the broader and specific themes of Tanner’s career and legacy, this narrative fills an important void. While exploring Tanner’s story, it also recognizes the value of unique instructional methodologies for teaching dance to young children and the vital role the arts play in children’s lives.
