Salt Lake City, UT -- Repertory Dance Theatre (RDT) presents Ring Around the Rose, a 'wiggle-friendly' series of performances for children and families. This unique series explores the magical world of the arts, including dance, theatre, music and storytelling by presenting professional artists in a fun and approachable format.
Each show begins at 11:00 am at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center and runs for one hour. Audiences are invited to participate in different ways in each show so children have an opportunity to experience the arts first-hand while in a professional stage setting.
We have a great season coming up with some annual favorites and the return of some old classics. RDT will start the season on September 14 with a dance/art collaboration and we're bringing back two favorites from last year - Hatch Music & Magic and Spy Hop / Utah Film Center. With everything from dance to theatre to film, there are plenty of opportunities to get your feet stomping and mind buzzing!
