CDT Virtual Sharing Day

Our CDT Virtual Sharing Day is this 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 which classes are participating. (Not all classes are participating, but we plan to create more opportunities to share throughout the year.)

Each CDT class will have an opportunity to perform in the Tanner Dance 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 links are listed below.

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.

CDT Class Locations Sept. 28 – Oct. 1

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 off campus in an outdoor space or via Zoom. For outdoor classes, all dancers must wear masks. Dancers should wear sturdy shoes, and bring a water bottle and an extra layer in case the weather gets chilly. In the case of bad weather, your teacher will contact you with an alternate plan. Please check the schedule below to see when and where your dancer is having class.

Please email tannerdance.utah.edu if you would like to volunteer as a monitor during your dancer’s off site class.

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, or if you have children in the Fine Arts Preschool or Studio programs, please look for additional communication regarding those schedules.


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.
