Home Elevate Theater Company

The Elevate Theater Company is our musical theater company for performers with disabilities. Students who participate in this program will engage in classes full of singing, dancing, and acting which in turn will help them to develop social skills, cognitive skills and mobility/physical skills. Students will explore a variety of different emotions and characters framed in various scenarios as they prepare for their annual show in May of 2020. For ages 15+.

Needs-based scholarships and monthly payment options are available. Tanner Dance is a DSPD provider.
If you have DSPD, DO NOT register below. Please contact our office at (801)581-7374 with your support coordinator's name, phone number, and email so we can work out billing with them. We will also help you register for the class(es) you're interested in.

Schedule Overview:


Saturdays
10:00 - 11:30 AM

Meetings with New Participants

As a new participant, our program directors would love to meet with you before you register. We will give a more specific program overview as well as discuss program expectations, specific needs for the participant, answer questions, and gain a general sense if this program will be a good fit.  By meeting before classes begin, Tanner Dance faculty will have a better understanding of how to best support the participant and ensure a positive experience.

Please call us at (801) 581-7374 to be connected with Eliza Zenger to schedule a date to meet with our LEADD and Elevate directors.

Adults with Disabilities Calendar

Below are the calendar dates for all of our Adults with Disabilities Programs (all LEADDS and Elevate). Please refer to the calendar below if you have any questions about when classes begin, end, and any breaks in between.

Adaptive Needs Dance Class

Consider adding a class on Saturdays! What is Adaptive Needs Dance? Every person deserves the opportunity to dance! Adaptive Needs Dance classes are for children and young adults who wish to experience the joy of moving and self-expression. The class includes appropriate technique exercises for the whole body, and dancers explore shape, space, rhythm, and movement quality. Teachers use literature and other springboards that they creatively weave into the class. All classes have live accompaniment by experienced and engaging musicians. The AnD classes have the opportunity to perform at Kingsbury Hall in a year-end performance. For more information, please contact Joni Wilson at joni.wilson@utah.edu.
