RDT to Fill 20th Anniversary 'Ring Around the Rose' Stage with Dance History & Culture
RDT's "Ring Around the Rose" 20th anniversary continues with Repertory Dance Theatre on January 13, 2018 at 11:00 am. RDT will present a show exploring the history and culture of dance in a fun and interactive way.
Repertory Dance Theatre will be performing excerpts from their student show VOYAGE, that they will be performing for over 1,500 students at a free matinee event April 3-4, 2018, thanks to the Utah State Board of Education and the POPS program.
The RDT dancers will explore how modern dance has been influenced by the music and movement of cultures worldwide. Rhythms and patterns gathered from Africa, Asia, Middle East, Europe, and the Americas connect the past with the present to illustrate how dance can document history and culture and tell our collective story.
As always, the audience will have a chance to participate in the action with an invitation to dance on stage and from their seats. This wiggle-friendly show will delight young audiences as well as educate them on the history and culture of dance.
