Throughout the year the various classes and programs have performances to showcase their hard work. We invite you to attend and show your support. Below is a list of upcoming Tanner Dance events.
Summer Performances of "The Dancing Man"
Children’s Dance Theater 70th Anniversary performances of "The Dancing Man" continue in June 2019 at the Sandy Amphitheater and Utah Arts Festival and in the fall at Weber State in Ogden.
Join the University of Utah Children's Dance Theatre as they present The Dancing Man, a moving portrayal of a creative life from beginning to end. In a poor village by the Baltic Sea, an orphan boy named Joseph receives a pair of silver shoes, and with them the courage to follow a secret dream. Over the years, Joseph dances his way down the road to the southernmost sea, dancing hope and delight into the lives of those who need it most, until at last it is time to pass the silver shoes — and the dancing man's destiny — to another boy. First staged by the Children's Dance Theatre in 1986, The Dancing Man pays eloquent tribute to the lifelong pursuit of a dream and the joy of dance.
