Dancer + Parent Check List:

1) New CDT Concert date.

2) Check the new Concert boutique and photo information.

New CDT Concert Dates

We have been able to schedule new dates for the Capitol Theatre! We will perform Invention the week of September 14-19, 2020. Ogden is the following week on Friday, September 25, so in some ways this will be convenient for rehearsals. If you have already purchased tickets for Capitol Theatre, Arttix will automatically transfer your tickets to the new September dates. If you are not able to attend the show on these new dates, please call Arttix at 801-355-2787 and they will issue you a refund at no charge.

At this time, we are also planning on performing Invention at the Sandy Amphitheater and the Utah Arts Festival in June.

Please look over the updated rehearsal schedules below.

Concert Photos

This year class and individual photos will be purchased online through the Tanner Dance website. This means dancers will not need to bring a photo form and payment with them to the theater. Individual photos are $20, class photos are $10, or you can purchase both for $25.

Photos will be taken during the performances on Thursday, September 17. Following concert, you will receive access to a download from our new digital platform, Zenfolio: https://tannerdance.zenfolio.com/

Concert Volunteer Opportunities

If you signed up for a volunteer concert job, those assignments will automatically be transferred to the new dates. If you are no longer able to help with that assignment, you may delete your sign up through Track It Forward.


Virtual Classes

During this time that we are all stuck at home, we will be providing virtual dance classes! Our faculty are currently working on creating live classes via Zoom for dancers to participate in, as well as pre-recorded options that dancers can watch and move through on their own schedule. You should be receiving links and information for these classes throughout this week.

It is our goal to stay connected and dancing with you as best we can during this time. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at tannerdance@utah.edu.


CDT Registration

Originally we had planned to open CDT registration for 2020-2021 between April 6-April 24. Because our office is currently closed, we are postponing this registration process. We will let you know as soon as we are able to resume in-person registration, and have scheduled a new registration window for CDT dancers.

Background Checks

The University of Utah requires all staff, faculty, and volunteers who work with minors to complete a Youth Protection training and a background check every 3 years. If you are a new CDT parent, or if you completed this training prior to 2017, you must complete the training and background check by Friday, March 6. If you have already completed a background check this year, please disregard.

Click Here to Initiate a Background Check

Background Checks

At least one parent from each family is required to initiate a background check, which will last for three years. The background check costs $13. Those who complete the background check will receive 2 hours of volunteer time.

The University also accepts documentation of a background check from a public school through a local school district from the past three years in lieu of a background check through the University. You may send that documentation to tannerdance@utah.edu.

Start a Background Check

After you have paid for a background check, Tanner Dance will automatically submit the request for you. You will be receiving an email from applicationstation@certiphi.com requesting information to set up and process the background check. The process cannot be completed until you have responded to this request.

This link provides information about the process: https://www.hr.utah.edu/forms/lib/Certiphi_Background_Check_Info.pdf

Youth Protection Training

At least one parent from each CDT family is required to complete the online 30 minutes training. A link will be emailed to you once you complete the background check process.
