Emerge 2024

January 5-6, 2024 | VIRTUAL SHOW: JANUARY 19-FEBRUARY 19



January 5-6, 2024

7:30 PM + 2:00 PM on Saturday
Featuring choreography by RDT staff and dancers. A festival of community featuring performers from across the valley who come together to share their creativity and love of movement.
RDT Dancers and staff are working with performers from across the valley.
As part of our mission,  every RDT dancer is given the opportunity to develop their choreographic skills and be able to create work for the many schools and communities we serve. Because of this rich experience, many dancers have gone on to form their own companies or continue their dance careers in academic institutions throughout the country.
RDT’s Artistic Associate, Nicholas Cendese grew up studying with Tanner Dance and now returns to this renowned institution to set new work on some of their gifted young students. Additionally, Cendese will be setting work on students from South Valley Creative Dance, a studio he owns in Sandy.
RDT dancers will be creating new work for students attending the company’s Winterdance Workshop, running January 2-4 at the Rose Wagner. Fifth-year dancer, Jonathan Kim, will be choreographing and performing a solo using improvisational techniques, while third-year company member, Megan O'Brien will be working with a group of freelance dancers from the community.
RDT's rehearsal director and former dancer, Lauren Curley will be collaborating with dance teachers from across the Salt Lake Valley. RDT loves the opportunity to spotlight the abilities of outstanding instructors who typically work behind the scenes to make Utah a major dance center in the nation.  
Virtual Performance

The performance will be available to view on-demand starting January 19, 2024 at 12:00 pm MDT.

By purchasing a virtual ticket, you will be able to watch the performance up to two times until February 19, 2024.

Many of the more than 100 RDT alumni have established their own companies or have become international choreographers with many awards, commissions and distinctions of reputations. There is no doubt that legacy will expand with the company’s current corps of dancers.

One of the most important takeaways from Repertory Dance Theatre’s (RDT) artistic culture is the sincere encouragement its dance artists receive not only as performers but also as choreographers.
