Important Calendar UpdatE

The University of Utah has scheduled a “circuit breaker” hiatus September 28 through October 11. During this time, no students, faculty, or staff are allowed on campus. This break is a preventative measure for COVID-19, as well as a public safety measure surrounding the Vice Presidential Debate being held at Kingsbury Hall. Tanner Dance will follow the university’s directive and will not hold classes at the studio during this 2 week hiatus.

During the week of Sept. 28 – Oct. 3, CDT classes WILL be held either off campus in an outdoor space, or via Zoom. We will send a list next week with each class’s location or Zoom link.

CDT classes will NOT be held during the week of Oct. 5 – 10. Regular classes will resume at the studio beginning October 12.

In order to make up for the lost week in October, we are extending our fall session by one week in December. Our fall session will now finish on December 12.

If your dancer is also enrolled in ballet classes or the Contemporary Companies, please look for additional communication regarding those schedules.

Thank you for your flexibility during this time. We love dancing with you!


CDT Virtual Sharing Day

We will be holding a Virtual Sharing Day for select CDT classes on Saturday, Sept. 26. This event is an opportunity for CDT classes to share what they are working on with fellow company members and families.

This event will be divided into two sessions in order to safely space the dancers. Session A will be from 1:00 – 2:15 PM, and Session B will be from 2:45 – 4:00 PM. Please see the detailed schedule below for your dancer’s information.

Each CDT class will have an opportunity to perform in the Black Box Theatre, while the other classes watch from each of the studio spaces. The theatre floor will be sanitized between each class, providing time for dancers and teachers to discuss the creative process and choreographic tools used by each class. The event will be streamed live on YouTube so that families may watch from home. The YouTube link will be emailed to families the week of the event.

All dancers should arrive with their water bottle, hair pulled back, and wearing rehearsal blacks. (These do not need to be the matching CDT blacks.)

Please drop dancers off in the west circle. Our check in procedures will be the same as they are for weekly classes. Parents will not be allowed in the studio during this event. We encourage you to watch the dances via YouTube.

Reminder: Tuition Installments

If you selected a tuition installment plan when you registered for CDT, please call the office at 801-581-7374 to set up your payments asap. Our deadline for setting up installments is Sept. 25. Our office staff is best able to take your call earlier in the day, as our afternoons become very busy with check in for classes. We appreciate your help in making sure your dancer is registered and set up for tuition.


Reminder: Zoom Options + Attendance
  • CDT dancers can Zoom classes if they have a medical need. You will need to contact the office at tannerdance@utah.edu to get the Zoom link for your CDT class when the need arises. Please notify us at least one day in advance of your scheduled class.

 

  • Please stay home if you are feeling sick.

 

  • Healthy dancers are expected to be in class. As members of a performing company, it is important for the dancers to regularly train their bodies and creative skills. Please schedule events with family and friends outside of dance time.
