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.

Children's Dance Theatre

June 22nd at Sandy Amphitheater

10:00 am and 8:00 pm


The University of Utah Children's Dance Theatre presents: INVENTION

If you could travel to any moment in history, where would you go?

A young inventor named Emma has created the world's only fully functional time-travel wristwatch. She seizes the opportunity to visit the workshops and labs of her childhood heroes: Leonardo da Vinci, Marie Curie, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell... But time travel can be dangerous. Despite her care to avoid disturbing the past, Emma soon discovers that dozens of inventions are somehow disappearing from history. Now it's up to her to find out where the past went wrong.

Come join the Children's Dance Theatre at the Sandy Amphitheater for a lighthearted celebration of the spirit of ingenuity, brought to the stage through inventive dance, costumes and music.

This performance is free and appropriate for the whole family!

The Sandy Amphitheater is located at 1245 East 9400 South in Sandy.
