NEWS: Ring Around the Rose, #GivingTuesday, & more

December News & Events

#GivingTuesday - TODAY!
#GivingTuesday™ (#GT) is a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The second annual GivingTuesday is today, December 3, 2013. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday, we want the giving community to come together for #GivingTuesday.

Since 1966, Repertory Dance Theatre has been telling the story of America through Dance.

The story is still being told. That's why contemporary works by living choreographers make up more than 60% of RDT's current collection of dances.

Donate today to commission new work, preserve historical dance & support school outreach.

Help us tell your continuing story.

On the RDT Wish List

That's Martha (the RDT good luck charm) along with James Kline Larsen, Production Manager, in a rental van on tour.

Can you help us out? RDT is looking for:

  • A digital video camera - One of the critical ways we learn historical repertory is through video. Help us preserve these incredible dances more efficiently so they can continue to live on.
  • A company van - RDT travels across the state of Utah and the region doing Arts-In-Education work in the schools, including lecture demonstrations, movement classes, and in-depth residencies and we need a way to get around.
  • SkyMiles - RDT brings in choreographers and guest artists from around the world. Help us cover the cost of travel by donating your unused SkyMiles!

If you have any of these items, or would like to help us get them (either by donating funds, or getting us in touch with the right people), please contact David Pace at 801-534-1000 or david@rdtutah.org.
