Repertory Dance Theatre's Ring Around the Rose program, a series of performances for children and their families, presents Tanner Dance tonight, November 10, 2012 at 11:00 am. In celebration of the 75th anniversary of Tanner Dance, this Utah dance staple will be performing "75 Wishes."
“Our Ring Around the Rose performance celebrates the seventy-five year legacy of the Tanner Dance Program," says Joni Wilson, dance specialist of the Tanner Creative Dance Program. "For all children, we wish to share this Tanner Dance legacy of 'creating worthwhile human beings, one dancer at a time.' Come share wishes, sing along and watch children dance and rejoice in dreaming dreams and making wishes.”
Virginia Tanner (1915 - 1979), founder of the Virgina Tanner Creative Dancer Program, was guided by the premise that : "The motivating force behind my work is not only developing excellent dancers, but more importantly, developing young people who are useful, imaginative, worthwhile human beings."
The performance will be the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center (138 West 300 South, Salt Lake City). Tickets are $5 and available at the box office or through ArtTix (www.arttix.org or 801-534-1000).
