JULY 18 - 29, 2022 SALT LAKE CITY, UT
Dance West 2022 in its fourth year brings significant, influential artists to Utah to share their unique artistic perspectives, diverse aesthetics, and approaches to dance.
The summer of 2022 will be hosted by Repertory Dance Theater and Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City for two weeks.
Dance West is a workshop/festival committed to the exploration of the creative process, contemporary and traditional techniques, and repertory work. With participants from around the world, the workshop/festival nurtures and supports experimentation, exploration, curiosity, and collaboration with varied perspectives that span historical to contemporary points of view.
HISTORY OF DANCE WEST
Dance West began in 2019 representing the collaborative efforts of three established artistic entities, each with rich histories: Repertory Dance Theatre, Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, and the University of Utah’s Salt Dance Fest. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Dance West was canceled in 2020 and returned in 2021 with a streamlined form of the workshop presented by the two dance companies. In the summer of 2022 the two organizations will again collaborate on the workshop with a goal of working with the University of Utah once again starting the summer of 2023.
