Sandy + Arts Festival Performances

CDT will be performing Invention at the Sandy Amphitheatre on Tuesday, June 22 at 10:00 AM and 8:00 PM. Class rehearsals will take place the week prior, June 14-18, with a company rehearsal on Monday, June 21. Please save these dates in your calendar. We will be sending a detailed rehearsal schedule soon.

This year, the Utah Arts Festival has been moved to August 28. Due to COVID, the festival is limiting the number of dancers who can be in the space, so we will not be performing Invention at this venue. Instead, we will be creating a new performance that meets the festival’s COVID guidelines. We will update you as soon as we have determined which CDT classes will be performing.


We’d like to invite you to support our other programs at Tanner Dance in their upcoming spring performances.

Inspired by the theme of “elements”, this year’s Tipping Point Showcase is an immersive exploration of the pieces that make up our earth, our society, and ourselves. The members of Tipping Point, Momentum, and In Motion dance companies will present 8 new pieces of student choreography, as well as choreography by guest artists Juan Carlos Claudio, Lauren Curly, Natalie Gotter, Micah Moch, Natosha Washington, and Bashaun Williams.

Auditions for the Tanner Dance Contemporary Companies are Tuesday, May 25. All dancers entering 7th-12th grade are eligible to audition. A tuition discount is available for dancers who are concurrently enrolled in CDT.

University Return to Remote Learning: March 1 – 14

The University of Utah has determined that Tanner Dance will need to return to remote learning from March 1-14. Our CDT teachers are working on inventive ideas for classes during this time, and they may include a mix of Zoom classes and outdoor in-person classes. We will be sending out those details as soon as possible. Regular in-person classes will resume at the studio on March 15. 

All Studio classes, including ballet, will be held via Zoom, and those links will be sent out on Saturday, Feb. 27. If you have a dancer in the Contemporary Companies, you will be receiving information about plans for those classes. The Fine Arts Preschool and the French Immersion Preschools are exempt from this closure as they are essential services to the University. Tanner’s Arts-in-Education program will also continue in-person in the schools where we currently teach. The message from the Senior Vice President is below:

Adding an extra week of online coursework during the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters is first and foremost a public health decision. The all-online breaks were developed under the guidance of University of Utah Health epidemiologists. Lindsay Keegan, Russell Vinik, Darrell Barfuss and Jacob Pettit have modeled multiple scenarios throughout this schoolyear to provide the most up-to-date, science-based guidance for our campus operations. Our fall “circuit breaker” and spring “return to remote” (Sept. 28-Oct. 9, 2020 and March 1-14, 2021, respectively) are part of the effort to limit COVID-19 exposures and reduce infections and hospitalizations in our community.

We at Tanner Dance recognize that as a community we have been incredibly successful in the prevention of COVID at Tanner and we appreciate everyone who has helped in this effort and been so very responsible in following all of the protocols and keeping our dancers safe. Thank you to all parents, dancers, staff and faculty. Tanner Dance had no cases of COVID between August and December and we have had only four cases for which we have had to quarantine classes since January. Following the closure, March 1-14, we shall resume classes and shall commit to remain COVID free.

Dancer + Parent Check List:

1) Check your rehearsal blacks.

2) Download + review the CDT Invention Concert Packet, and add the Parent Meeting to your calendar.

3) Get your tickets for the Winter Gala. to the public

ATTENTION PARENTS: Please let us know right away if your dancer or someone in your household tests positive for COVID. It takes our staff a certain amount of time to gather information and directives from contact tracing and to quickly communicate with classes who may have been affected.

In the case of a positive test please call the office immediately with the following information:

  1. What date did your dancer first experience symptoms?
  2. What date did your dancer receive a positive test?
  3. What date was your dancer last in class at Tanner Dance?

Our ability to stay safe and stay open relies on you providing us with thorough and timely information. Thank you!


Rehearsal Blacks

All dancers should have received a set of rehearsal blacks and a CDT t-shirt. If your dancer has not received their blacks, please call the office at 801-581-7374. If your dancer has been participating via Zoom, please call the office to arrange a time to pick them up.

Many dancers did not turn in size requests, and so we had to make our best guess. If your blacks do not fit, we have limited sizes on hand to trade. Please call the office before sending your dancer in to trade sizes. We will let you know over the phone if a trade is possible and will switch it out in your dancer’s class.

Thank you for your understanding as we trouble shoot our ordering and distribution process. We will be making adjustments for next year.
