Tanner Dance

University of Utah  - Virginia Tanner Creative Dance Program

To demonstrate and promote the essential role of the arts in the learning and development of every child, Virginia Tanner established one of Utah's first Arts in Education Programs in the 1960's.  The program incorporates dance and movement into academic curriculum using high-quality, innovative, and sequential arts instruction.

This program provides, in-depth, curriculum based dance experiences that engage students and classroom teachers in quality dance instruction.  Arts in Education services include lecture/demonstrations and school performances.

All Arts in Education Programs are designed to work with teachers and administrators to provide children with opportunities that offer a complete artistic experience and support the Utah State Core Curriculum.
