RDT's Ring Around the Rose presents

Jeanne Wagner Theatre
Celebrating the art of creative dance, this Utah dance staple will present an interactive show for all ages. We are excited to announce that there will be two shows this year so everyone will have a chance to see this amazing show!
This year marks the 80th anniversary year of remarkable and innovative dance teaching established by Virginia Tanner. It was her wish to “bring a measure of beauty into the lives of children” while encouraging them to see the world with a “magic eye;” an eye for beauty, compassion, acceptance, courage, truth and creativity all connected to their voice through dance. This year Tanner Dance will present “Make A Wish” in celebration of wishes, hopes, ideals and aspirations that take us to our furthest imaginings.
Confident that the use of wholesome creative activity allows young people of all ages to develop alert minds, healthy bodies, and strong character, Virginia Tanner established the Tanner Dance Program in 1937. Her founding philosophy has become an enduring legacy of almost eight decades. Today, the program complements and extends the University of Utah's mission of teaching, research and service, serving more than 40,000 students annually on campus and at satellite locations, as well as in elementary schools and community centers throughout Utah.
