RDT begins our 48th season with a tribute to our dance legacy. The centerpiece for this stirring concert will be José Limón 's masterwork, "Missa Brevis." This monumental work is a memento to cities destroyed during World War II and to those unconquerable qualities in human beings that compel the spirit to rise in hope and to survive. The choreography features 22 dancers including RDT and guests from BYU Division of Dance who will perform to a powerful score by Zoltan Kodaly.

Also featured are "For Betty" by RDT Alumnus, Bill Evans and "Ariadne" by Ze'eva Cohen, both legacies in the history of RDT.

The language of dance can communicate our most intimate thoughts and feelings and bring smiles, giggles and guffaws to lift our spirits. RDT provides the time and place for audiences of all ages to enjoy some choreography "on the lighter side."

RDT will offer this "gift" to the community as a lively way to usher in the holiday season. Pieces will include "Jukebox" by Bill Evans choreographed to the fun and lively music of Glen Miller as well as "Fin Amours" by Susan Hadley. Also returning is the audience favorite from last year, "Bolero" by Joanie Smith.
