Costume Fittings

Costume fittings for our CDT Invention concert will take place the week of Nov. 2 – 12.

Our costume designers are looking at how much the dancers have grown since last year and what alterations need to be made.

Please be sure your dancer attends class during this time frame and wears a leotard so they can easily try on their costume. If your dancer is currently attending class on Zoom, please call the costume shop to make a private appointment: 801-585-4892.

We are working on confirming concert dates in late spring. We will send a rehearsal schedule as soon as those dates are confirmed. Thank you for your patience and flexibility!


CDT Class Coordinators

We still need class coordinators for the following CDT classes:

  • Miss Mimi’s 3rd Grade
  • Miss Ashley’s 6th Grade

Class coordinators assist with class communications, help schedule costume fittings, and other event coordination. Class coordinators have the opportunity to complete many of their volunteer hours from home. (Each CDT family is asked to provide 20 volunteer hours per year.)

Your dancer does not need to be a member of these classes in order to be the class coordinator. If you are able to help us fill one of these positions, please sign up by Tuesday, Nov. 10.

Thank you!

High School Summer Options

As we look into next summer we are considering innovative options to keep our high school dancers engaged and well trained. Consistent , ongoing technique and composition classes will help our dancers achieve significant growth as performers, choreographers, and athletes. In an effort to offer more continuity to dancers throughout the summer, we are considering alternatives to the usual one week intensive camp.

We’d greatly appreciate your input as we look at new options. If you have a dancer who will be entering 9th-12th grade for the 2021-2022 school year, please click the button below and complete a quick survey.
