Repertory Dance Theatre presents A Day of Dance at The Leonardo
February 18, 2012

SALT LAKE CITY - Known for their commitment to the health of our communities and stewardship of the environment, Repertory Dance Theatre will present a series of activities on February 18 at The Leonardo to raise awareness of the importance of clean air.

RDT invites the public to participate in short Movement Explorations that will focus the impacts of air pollution, how the environment affects your health and the importance of making wise choices to help decrease pollution.

Four Movement sessions beginning at 11:30 am, 12:00 pm, 12:30 pm, and 1:30 pm will invite your participation in a gentle and fun 20 minute movement adventure.

At 2:00 pm RDT dancers will perform in response to Amy Caron’s immense sculpture,Holotype, filling The Leonardo atrium. Holotype is a dynamic instillation inspired by algae that suggest an inner landscape or “inscape" that the dancers will use as a springboard for choreography as they perform around, between, inside and under the translucent organic forms.

The audience will gain a new perspective on the subject of “clean air” as they are invited to view the RDT dancers and the sculpture instillation from a variety of angles in the atrium gallery. The necessity of finding ways to produce clean and renewable energy is stimulating production of renewable biofuels using algae as a viable alternative to fossil fuel.

*Activities with RDT are included with the admission price to The Leonardo. Please check their website for updated costs of general admission and membership.


RDT's Arts & Environment Programs

Repertory Dance Theatre has just received an Environmental Justice Small Grant from the Region 8 of the Environmental Protection Agency. The grant will enable RDT to serve elementary school students and their teachers in Salt Lake City’s west side and central cities with educational services that use movement as a tool to demonstrate and empower youth to make a life long commitment to fitness and health. Participating elementary schools will learn about the elements of a healthy lifestyle and a healthy neighborhood.

Find out how your school might participate by calling RDT's Lynne Larson at 801-534-1000.
