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. Through inventive and stimulating productions, educational outreach programs for all ages, and collaborative efforts with artists of all fields, WCDC forges a strong tradition of meaningful artistry and community engagement.

Company members are required to attend technique classes on Tuesday evenings (8:30-10 PM) and attend rehearsals 2-4 additional days per week. Dancers are also required to help in fundraising, teaching, and other company responsibilities. Dancers receive payment for teaching as well as a performance stipend ($75/dance). All company members are required to be available for evening rehearsals and a long Saturday rehearsal with our visiting artist in residency, Jake Casey, from Sept 5-12. After Sept 12 his work will continue to be rehearsed on Thursday nights.

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 feeder program that can help dancers prepare technically and artistically for performance on the main company
Wasatch II dancers take technique class on Tuesday nights (8:30-10:00 PM) and attend rehearsals 1-2 additional days per week. Wasatch II dancers don’t pay any tuition but are in charge of a fundraising event.

Wasatch II Requirements:

-Must be 18 years+ to audition and participate on Wasatch II
-Must commit to the entire season (early August  to mid November)
-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)
