Wasatch Contemporary Dance Company

The Wasatch Contemporary Dance Company is a nonprofit organization and professional performance company in Provo, UT with roots going back to March 2010. Our mission is to invite you in, encourage reflection, and stir you to action. We are building a creative and compassionate community through dance. 

Company members are required to attend technique classes on Tuesday evenings (8:30-10 PM) and choose one other technique class to attend weekly: Wednesdays 6:30-8 PM or Fridays 9-10:30 AM. In addition, main company members commit to 2-5 rehearsals per week. Rehearsals are typically held weekday mornings and evenings and some weekends. Sometimes several rehearsals can be held back to back. Dancers are also required to help in fundraising, teaching, and other company responsibilities. Dancers receive payment for teaching (varies per job), helping to run a major event (varies per job), and performing stipend ($100/dance plus 1% of ticket sales).

WCDC Requirements:

-Must be 18 years+ to audition and participate on WCDC

-Dance degree and/or prior professional experience preferred

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 PM) and attend rehearsals 1-2 additional days per week. Wednesday night and Friday morning technique classes are available to Wasatch II members but not required. Wasatch II dancers are required to help with committee responsibilities alongside WCDC members. Wasatch II began in 2017 as a tuition-paying company and later progressed to a tuition-free performance opportunity. Recently we made the change to pay Wasatch II members 1% of ticket sales after performing in the show.

Wasatch II Requirements:

-Must be 18 years+ to audition and participate on Wasatch II

-Must commit to the 4 month concert period 

-Must fill out online audition form and submit resume online prior to arriving at the audition
