Repertory Dance Theatre is dedicated to the creation, performance, perpetuation, and appreciation of modern dance.
RDT Dance is the nation’s oldest and most successful repertory dance company. Unlike conventional modern dance organizations, we present you with a diverse range of modern dance styles and choreographers paired together in dynamic and unexpected performances.
New viewers often ask us what to expect from an RDT Dance performance. We tell them grace and athleticism, beauty and power. Beyond that, we tell them to embrace the unexpected. So, what is RDT Dance all about? Simply said, we are about art. Art in motion, expressed through our bodies as modern dance. Art that in its immediacy and intimacy can be both thrilling and profound. Art that challenges you, and art that you won’t see coming.
Repertory Dance Theatre & Tanner Dance
A Dancing Partnership Like Never Before
Since 1937, Utah’s children have benefitted from an extraordinary vision put into motion by Virginia Tanner, the indomitable founder of Tanner Dance and Repertory Dance Theatre. Today, between our sister organizations, over 50,000 students and teachers are reached annually with dance education offerings. Because Arts in Education is an integral part of Virginia’s vision, RDT and Tanner Dance have teamed up for Love UT | Give UT 2015, to ensure arts and dance education in Utah continues.
Each year, RDT and Tanner Dance coordinate together, bringing dance and movement education to Utah schools on a 3-year rotation for each district. Along with RDT, Tanner’s performance group - Children’s Dance Theatre - presents free in-theatre matinees to schools and special needs groups.
