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 Presents:
Water & Sand

Children’s Dance Theatre presents an original tale of the desert, magic, water and drought. Among the shifting sands of the Sahara, a malevolent djinn is released after a thousand years of imprisonment and is determined to rid the land of human life. As water grows ever scarcer, a young nomad must bring the communities of the Sahara together to contain the expanding desert. Don’t miss this compelling stage production featuring original choreography, costumes and music by the artists of CDT.
