Fall 2020 FAQs

Read our full Health + Safety Plan for Fall 2020


Parking Policies 2020-2021

For the 2020-2021 year, we are asking that all dancers be dropped off and picked up. At this time, parents will not be allowed to park in the Tanner Parking lot, with the exceptions of: parents attending a Parent-Tot class, parent volunteers helping with COVID safety, and teen dancers who are old enough to drive themselves to class. Parking passes can be purchased beginning Monday, August 24 at the Tanner Dance office for $7 per month.

Due to our limited number of parking spots, even if a Tanner lot pass has been purchased, Tanner Dance cannot guarantee that there will be open spots during your class time. Please seek out other visitor parking options on campus if the Tanner Dance lot is full. Parking in the west or east circles is not permitted, unless you are a high school dancer driving yourself and the lot is full.

Parking areas are designated by signs specifying the type of parking allowed and the hours of enforcement. Unless otherwise stated, permit lots are enforced year round, from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Saturday parking near the studio is usually plentiful and free, with some exceptions for sporting or other large campus events.

Parking regulations are enforced year-round, including during breaks and between semesters. Permit areas and meters are not regulated on state holidays. Fire lanes, restricted areas, designated reserved and disabled spaces are enforced 24 hours every day of the year. Violators will be ticketed. For more information, call Commuter Services at 801-581-6415 or visit the website at www.parking.utah.edu

Reminder: Invention Concert Postponed

Our faculty and staff have carefully considered health protocols for this fall along with limitations for theater attendance, and the impact these circumstances have on our ability to rehearse and perform a large production. We have decided to tentatively postpone our Invention performances until our spring dates in February, 2021. We also have some tentative dates held as another option later in the spring should we need to postpone further.

We will be refunding tickets purchased for the original March 2020 dates. Arttix will be handling that process, so please look for an email from them rather than calling the Tanner Dance office.

We are working on ways that dancers can rehearse with their past teachers as we get closer to our concert dates, as well as opportunities for classes to create dances with their new teachers. It is difficult to forecast exactly what this year will look like, but we will keep you updated as plans solidify or change.
