About WCDC

Heather Slider Crop

Wasatch Contemporary Dance Company (WCDC) was founded in April 2010 by Artistic Director Jessica Heaton. Jessica 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. Jessica had a vision of Provo/Orem developing as an artistic hub in Utah County and wanted a dance company to be a part of that progression. The company has performed in a variety of community events, including Orem Concerts in the Park and several benefit concerts for high schools and other community causes. WCDC produces two of their own full-length concerts each year, collaborates with other artists in the area, hosts public contemporary technique classes, and teaches master classes and workshops for middle and high school dance students.


We would like to give a huge THANK YOU to the Utah Division of Arts and Museums for supporting Wasatch Contemporary Dance Company!
