Wasatch Contemporary Dance Company (WCDC) was founded in April 2010 by Artistic Director Jessica Heaton. Heaton saw the need for a contemporary company in Utah County as an artistic outlet for the numerous talented dancers graduating from colleges in the area. She had a vision of the Provo/Orem area developing as an artistic hub in Utah County and has successfully made contemporary dance an important part of that progression. Now nearly 14 years after its founding, WCDC has made an indelible mark on the community through free creative dance classes in public libraries, extending the mental and emotional health benefits of dance to all ages, and creating innovative and symbolic performances that drive the community forward into greater creativity and compassion. The company has been the recipient of many community awards and grants, been featured as guest performers in many community events and helped advance dance education in the area through invites from public and private dance programs.
We would like to give a huge THANK YOU to the Utah Division of Arts and Museums for supporting Wasatch Contemporary Dance Company!
