In Accord is an annual performance that features dancers from a variety of Tanner Dance programs accompanied by live musicians. The CDT 4th, 6th, and Dance Ensemble classes will be performing in this event.


In Accord Silent Auction

As part of the In Accord performances, we hold an annual silent auction with all proceeds going directly to the Tanner Dance Scholarship Fund, which provides needs-based scholarships to students in all programs.

Each EVEN CDT grade will be creating a class basket for this auction and you should be hearing from your class coordinators soon-if you haven’t already. Please note that any donation, either towards your class basket, or another item for the auction, can count toward your 20 hour volunteer requirement for CDT. *It is not a requirement to donate.

Although just the even year grades will be participating in the creation of a class basket, we are taking other donations as well. You can receive 1 volunteer hour for each $10 value (i.e. if you donate a $30 item you can count 3 volunteer hours).

Please email emma.featherstone@utah.edu with any donations or questions or sign up HERE.

We are also looking for a corporate match for funds we receive from the auction. If you think your company might be interested in something like this, please contact Emma at emma.featherstone@utah.edu.


CDT Summer Tours 2020

This summer, CDT has been invited to participate in two touring opportunities: the Dance and the Child National Conference at Hope College in Holland, Michigan, and the Center for LDS Arts Festival in New York City. We will be holding auditions for both tours. Look for dates and detailed information in next week’s eNEWS.
