Winter Gala Dancer Info

COSTUMES

All CDT dancers will need a tan camisole leotard (girls), or biker shorts (boys) to wear under their costume. The only exception is CDT 8th grade; this class should wear their CDT rehearsal black leotard.

MASKS

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.)

Tickets are $10 and includes links for both performances (February 26 + 27). You will be sent the links 3 days prior to the event (Feb. 23), and at 12:00 the day of the first show.

Ticket sales will only be on sale until Friday, Feb. 26 at 4:30 PM, so don’t delay!

Artists and arts organizations are struggling during this time of COVID. Your ticket purchase is a valuable contribution to the Tanner Dance program. Your support will help us continue to create worthwhile human beings, one dancer at a time. Thank you!

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.

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.

Invention Rehearsal + Performance Dates

We have re-scheduled our CDT Invention performances for the week of May 17 – 22 at the Capitol Theatre. We will be adhering to any COVID-19 restrictions that the county and the venue have in place at that time and may be increasing the number of performances in order to accommodate smaller audience sizes.

Rehearsals with last year’s teachers will take place during regular CDT class times in the spring: 3rd grade classes will begin rehearsals in March, and 4th grade and up will begin rehearsing in April. (Teachers will change class times rather than the dancers.) 2nd graders are already beginning to work on their dance with Miss Chara during their regular class time.

Company rehearsals will take place the week of May 10 – 15. Detailed dates and times will be sent soon.

Halloween Celebrations

The CDT 2nd and 3rd grade classes will be celebrating Halloween this Tuesday, Oct. 27 in class, and CDT 4th-6th grade classes will celebrate on Thursday, Oct. 29. Your dancer may wear their costume to class on this day.

  • Your face mask will be required for entrance into our building as per usual. Do not put a costume mask over your cloth mask. If you want, make your cloth mask part of your costume.
  • Please arrive already dressed in your costume. Remember there is no changing in the bathrooms or locker rooms.
  • Please be sure that you can dance in your costume and that you have bare feet for dancing.

Health + Safety Reminders
  • When dropping off your dancer, please pull up all the way into the circle rather than letting your dancer out at the bottom of the drive or on the east side of the building. See map below for access points.
  • Please remind your dancer not to prop open any outside doors as they leave the building. This is against fire code, and poses other safety issues for our dancers and faculty.
  • If your dancer is exposed to someone with COVID-19, please send an email to tannerdance@utah.edu, and keep your dancer home for 2 weeks, or until they receive a negative test result. We will provide you with Zoom links so that your dancer can still participate in class during this time.
  • If your dancer tests positive for COVID-19, please inform the office immediately so that we may notify your dancer’s class of the exposure. We will not disclose your name when notifying families.
  • Please remind your dancer to wear a mask at all times, even when dancing outside.
  • We encourage you to please be careful and considerate when participating in group activities outside of Tanner Dance. Our in-person format depends on everyone’s cooperation, and we want our community to be healthy and safe. Thank you!


High School Summer Options

As we look into next summer we are considering innovative options to keep our high school dancers engaged and well trained. Consistent , ongoing technique and composition classes will help our dancers achieve significant growth as performers, choreographers, and athletes. In an effort to offer more continuity to dancers throughout the summer, we are considering alternatives to the usual one week intensive camp.

We’d greatly appreciate your input as we look at new options. If you have a dancer who will be entering 9th-12th grade for the 2021-2022 school year, please click the button below and complete a quick survey.

Please see details for each of these events below.


CDT Virtual Sharing Day

Our CDT Virtual Sharing Day is this Saturday, Sept. 26. This event is an opportunity for CDT classes to share what they are working on with fellow company members and families.

This event will be divided into two sessions in order to safely space the dancers. Session A will be from 1:00 – 2:15 PM, and Session B will be from 2:45 – 4:00 PM. Please see the detailed schedule below for which classes are participating. (Not all classes are participating, but we plan to create more opportunities to share throughout the year.)

Each CDT class will have an opportunity to perform in the Tanner Dance Black Box Theatre, while the other classes watch from each of the studio spaces. The theatre floor will be sanitized between each class, providing time for dancers and teachers to discuss the creative process and choreographic tools used by each class. The event will be streamed live on YouTube so that families may watch from home. The YouTube links are listed below.

All dancers should arrive with their water bottle, hair pulled back, and wearing rehearsal blacks. (These do not need to be the matching CDT blacks.)

 

Please drop dancers off in the west circle. Our check in procedures will be the same as they are for weekly classes. Parents will not be allowed in the studio during this event. We encourage you to watch the dances via YouTube.

CDT Class Locations Sept. 28 – Oct. 1

The University of Utah has scheduled a “circuit breaker” hiatus September 28 through October 11. During this time, no students, faculty, or staff are allowed on campus. This break is a preventative measure for COVID-19, as well as a public safety measure surrounding the Vice Presidential Debate being held at Kingsbury Hall. Tanner Dance will follow the university’s directive and will not hold classes at the studio during this 2 week hiatus.

During the week of Sept. 28 – Oct. 3, CDT classes will be held off campus in an outdoor space or via Zoom. For outdoor classes, all dancers must wear masks. Dancers should wear sturdy shoes, and bring a water bottle and an extra layer in case the weather gets chilly. In the case of bad weather, your teacher will contact you with an alternate plan. Please check the schedule below to see when and where your dancer is having class.

Please email tannerdance.utah.edu if you would like to volunteer as a monitor during your dancer’s off site class.

If your dancer is also enrolled in ballet classes or the Contemporary Companies, or if you have children in the Fine Arts Preschool or Studio programs, please look for additional communication regarding those schedules.

Important Calendar UpdatE

The University of Utah has scheduled a “circuit breaker” hiatus September 28 through October 11. During this time, no students, faculty, or staff are allowed on campus. This break is a preventative measure for COVID-19, as well as a public safety measure surrounding the Vice Presidential Debate being held at Kingsbury Hall. Tanner Dance will follow the university’s directive and will not hold classes at the studio during this 2 week hiatus.

During the week of Sept. 28 – Oct. 3, CDT classes WILL be held either off campus in an outdoor space, or via Zoom. We will send a list next week with each class’s location or Zoom link.

CDT classes will NOT be held during the week of Oct. 5 – 10. Regular classes will resume at the studio beginning October 12.

In order to make up for the lost week in October, we are extending our fall session by one week in December. Our fall session will now finish on December 12.

If your dancer is also enrolled in ballet classes or the Contemporary Companies, please look for additional communication regarding those schedules.

Thank you for your flexibility during this time. We love dancing with you!


CDT Virtual Sharing Day

We will be holding a Virtual Sharing Day for select CDT classes on Saturday, Sept. 26. This event is an opportunity for CDT classes to share what they are working on with fellow company members and families.

This event will be divided into two sessions in order to safely space the dancers. Session A will be from 1:00 – 2:15 PM, and Session B will be from 2:45 – 4:00 PM. Please see the detailed schedule below for your dancer’s information.

Each CDT class will have an opportunity to perform in the Black Box Theatre, while the other classes watch from each of the studio spaces. The theatre floor will be sanitized between each class, providing time for dancers and teachers to discuss the creative process and choreographic tools used by each class. The event will be streamed live on YouTube so that families may watch from home. The YouTube link will be emailed to families the week of the event.

All dancers should arrive with their water bottle, hair pulled back, and wearing rehearsal blacks. (These do not need to be the matching CDT blacks.)

Please drop dancers off in the west circle. Our check in procedures will be the same as they are for weekly classes. Parents will not be allowed in the studio during this event. We encourage you to watch the dances via YouTube.
