Winter Gala

All CDT dancers will need to purchase their own mask. Masks should be a plain, neutral gray that doesn’t draw attention — medium gray to light gray, not too dark — with no visible logos or any other embellishment. Please ensure that your dancer’s mask fits comfortably and stays in place while dancing. Masks with ear loops are preferable to the kind that tie in the back, due to the possibility of strings coming untied while performing. (Dancers will also need this mask for the Capitol Theatre performances in May.)

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.

Happy New Year!

Welcome back! We are excited to dance with you in 2021. Here are a few important reminders as you return to the studio:

  • Parents: Please pull all the way up to the temperature checkers before letting your dancer out of the car. Do not drop your dancer off on the east side of the building; you must be present for their temperature check.
  • Dancers: Remember to wear your mask up over your nose at all times, regularly sanitize your hands, and remain socially distanced during class. Please be respectful to Tanner Dance teachers and staff as they give you safety instructions.
  • If your dancer has had an exposure to COVID-19, or they or someone in your household is feeling sick, please keep your dancer home and notify Tanner Dance immediately at tannerdance@utah.edu. Our office staff will provide further instructions and let you know when your dancer can return. We are working closely with the University of Utah Contact Tracing Team, and we require accurate and timely information from our families in order to keep Tanner Dance running safely.

Remember that we are all in this together! Following these guidelines will help our community keep dancing.

2) Check your new CDT class time

3) Sign up to be a health + safety volunteer


We are returning to the Studio!

We are looking optimistically to fall and returning to CDT classes at the studio on August 24th! This summer we have spent a great deal of time researching how to return to the studio as safely as possible. We have spoken to public health officials, medical experts, colleagues across campus, and administrative leaders to discover how best to protect our faculty, staff, and all of our Tanner Dance students and patrons. Please take a moment to review our health and safety plan.

Read our full Health + Safety Plan for Fall 2020

  • All CDT dancers must be dropped off in the west circle. Staff and volunteers will check each dancers’ temperature before they enter the building. Any dancers with COVID-19 symptoms will be asked to return home, along with any dancers in their carpool. In order to minimize the amount of traffic in the building, parents and visitors will not be allowed inside.
  • Dancers must wear a mask.
  • Dancers must arrive already dressed in dance clothes, and with minimal personal items. Locker rooms will not be available for changing cloths.
  • Dancers must bring their own water bottle labeled with their name. Please do not bring any food.
  • Sanitizing stations will be located at each door for dancers to use as they enter and exit.
  • Dancers will be asked to maintain social distancing at all times.
  • All CDT dancers must exit through the back door or east stairwell and be picked up in the east circle accessed via 1800 East.

Thank you for helping us keep our community safe!


Adjusted CDT Class Times for Fall 2020

As part of our health and safety plan, we have adjusted some of our class times to accommodate cleaning and sanitizing our studios between classes, and to decrease the amount of dancers traveling through the hallways at the same time. Please check below to see your new CDT class time.

  • Miss Melony’s 3rd grade: Tuesdays 4:30 – 6:00 PM
  • Miss Mimi’s 3rd grade: Tuesdays 4:30 – 6:00 PM
  • Miss Mary Ann’s 4th grade: Mondays + Thursdays 4:15 – 5:45 PM

If you are healthy and able to help us, please click the link below to sign up for a time slot. There will be a training session for volunteers on Thursday, August 20 from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.

We appreciate your help to make our return to the studio as smooth and as safe as possible!

Invention Concert Postponed

Our faculty and staff have carefully considered health protocols for this fall along with limitations for theater attendance, and the impact these circumstances have on our ability to rehearse and perform a large production. We have decided to tentatively postpone our Invention performances until our spring dates in February, 2021. We also have some tentative dates held as another option later in the spring should we need to postpone further.

We will be refunding tickets purchased for the original March 2020 dates. Arttix will be handling that process, so please look for an email from them rather than calling the Tanner Dance office.

We are working on ways that dancers can rehearse with their past teachers as we get closer to our concert dates, as well as opportunities for classes to create dances with their new teachers. It is difficult to forecast exactly what this year will look like, but we will keep you updated as plans solidify or change.


Tuition Scholarships Available for CDT Dancers

We are boosting our scholarship funds in order to assist more families this year. We have eased the requirements for qualification and have extended scholarships to apply to all of Tanner’s programs.

The deadline to apply for a CDT scholarship is Wednesday, July 15.

Please click below to see more information about how to apply.

CDT Seniors!

This week we’d like to congratulate our amazing graduating seniors. While the end of the year was not what we anticipated or hoped for, we want our seniors to know how proud we are of them, and we wish them the very best as they venture out into the world as powerful, kind, creative human beings.

We hope you’ll take a moment to read about the memories and lessons these dancers have gained from their CDT experience.

Senior Reflections


CDT Registration 2020-2021

CDT registration for 2020-2021 will open Monday, April 20. You will be emailed a registration link specific for your dancer’s class. You may pay in full at this time, or you may pay the $50 commitment fee as a down payment, and Tanner Dance staff will contact you to set up installments when we are able to return to the office. This is to protect your personal credit card information. All CDT dancer must be registered by Friday, May 1.

**Tuition scholarships are available for qualifying families, and we are taking the effects of COVID-19 into account. Please contact us if you would like to submit a scholarship request form.

All forms that you received with your CDT registration packet in January will be due when our office staff is back onsite. We will let you know when that date is as soon as possible. These forms include the bio release form and dancer contract.

Remember that CDT tuition now includes your dancer’s summer camp.

Our studio registration also opens today. We encourage all our CDT students to consider taking ballet, as it improves alignments, builds strength, and increases flexibility and range of motion. We also offer a multi-class discount when you add a studio class to your registration. We can incorporate this discount into your installment plan when we are back onsite.


Summer Camp Online

Due to the situation with COVID-19, the University of Utah has asked that we transition our summer programming to a virtual format. While this means our camps and classes will look different than usual, we are committed to providing the best quality experience for your dancer. Our stellar faculty is dedicated to creating materials and lessons that will be engaging, challenging, and fun. The last few weeks have provided our staff with a testing ground for how we can best teach and connect on a virtual platform. This summer’s new format is designed to provide innovative and joyous ways for your student to dance.

All summer camps will be streamlined into one camp per age group. Each age group will have access to a digital collection using Flip Grid which will include 2 weeks-worth of materials, video lessons, and projects rather than the usual one-week. The first week’s activities will be provided beginning June 1, and the second week’s activities will be provided beginning June 29. This virtual format will provide dancers and their families flexibility as far as time frame; lessons and activities can be completed within a week, or spaced out to last a month. Each camp collection will include dance technique, dance improvisation and composition, music or drumming, and visual art. Flip Grid makes it possible for dancers to share their creations with their teachers and peers, and receive feedback in a secure way. There will also be times set up when dancers can interact live with each other and their teacher through Zoom.

In addition to the digital collections, all camp participants will have access to 8 weeks of live Zoom classes in June and July. These classes will expand dancers’ technical and creative skills and are divided by age: Preschool-Kindergarten, 1st-2nd grade, 3rd-4th grade, 5th-6th grade, 7th-8th grade, and 9th-12th grade. Dancers entering preschool through 4th grade will have class once per week, and dancers entering 5th-12th grade will have class twice per week.

For members of the Children’s Dance Theatre, the combination of the digital materials and the live Zoom classes will fulfill the CDT summer requirement. If you register your dancer for CDT 2020-2021, you will receive the links and passwords needed for your summer programming at the end of May.

Classes will be taught by dance educators and instructors from across the country. They will share their expertise and passion for dance and provide enriching, age appropriate, creative, and culturally-authentic experiences.

daCi Michigan Tour – Audition Rescheduled

New daCi Audition Date: Saturday, Feb. 22 from 1:00 – 2:00 PM

Open to dancers 2nd grade through High School

Tanner Dance has been invited to participate in the Dance and the Child International (daCi) USA, “Anchored in Hope: Expanding Horizons” gathering, July 27 – August 2, 2020 in Holland, Michigan. The beautiful campus of Hope College will provide a multitude of dance experiences including daily skills and cultural classes, multi-generational creative classes, and performing opportunities for ages 7 to adult.

This national gathering is an opportunity for children, young people, and adults to come together for a culturally and artistically rich, collaborative environment for three action-filled days. Participants will explore, create, and observe through daily classes which will include technique (Western and non-Western) and collaborative multi-generational choreography. Participants will create dance works in collaborative classes, learn new dances in cultural and world classes, and view or perform dances in a professional theatre each evening. Classes will be taught by dance educators and instructors from across the country. They will share their expertise and passion for dance and provide enriching, age appropriate, creative, and culturally-authentic experiences. The daCi participants will enjoy an evening gathering and dinner on Wednesday as well as a final banquet on Saturday evening.
