OUR MISSION

Repertory Dance Theatre is dedicated to the creation, performance, perpetuation, and appreciation of modern dance.

RDT is the oldest and most successful company of its kind - a living museum representing one hundred years of dance history, preserving the largest and most significant collection of American dance in the world.

RDT acquires classic works by significant twentieth century choreographers and also commissions new works for its prestigious repertory. From the legendary Isadora Duncan and Doris Humphrey to the revolutionary Merce Cunningham and Michio Ito, RDT is both a museum and a contemporary gallery representing the scope and diversity of modern dance past and present.

The company has a long standing commitment to arts-in-education. RDT has created activities which educate audiences of all ages through classes, workshops, lectures and performances which reach over 30,000 school students each year in Utah alone.

RDT strives to broaden the public's understanding of the art of modern dance through a variety of community-based programs and acts as a resource center and laboratory for dancers, choreographers, visual artists, writers and composers.
