Wasatch Contemporary Dance Company

The Wasatch Contemporary Dance Company is a nonprofit organization and professional performance company whose mission is to make continued advances for professional dance in Utah County.

Rehearsals are typically held weekday mornings and evenings and some weekends. Sometimes several rehearsals can be held back to back.

Wasatch II

Wasatch II is designed to serve two important functions:

  1. Provide performance opportunities for more adult dancers in Utah County, with lower commitment hours for those who still want to continue performing but cannot commit to a full company load
    2. Create a space where dancers can improve their technical and artistic skills and familiarize themselves with the WCDC style

Wasatch II dancers take technique class on Tuesday nights (8:30-10:00 PM) and attend rehearsals 1-2 additional days per week. Thursday night technique classes are available to Wasatch II members but not required. Wasatch II dancers don’t pay any tuition but are required to help with committee responsibilities alongside WCDC members.

Wasatch II Requirements:

-Must be 18 years+ to audition and participate on Wasatch II
-Must commit to the concert period (early August  to late November 2019)
-Must bring audition application, dance resume, headshot, 30-60 second dance solo, and $20 application fee to the audition (cash, check, card and Venmo accepted)
