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 (7:00-8:30 PM) and Thursday evenings (7:00-8:30 PM) and attend 2-4 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) as well as a performance stipend ($85/dance) paid shortly after the performance, plus 1% of ticket sales.

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 (7:00-8:30 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.
