• Ririe-Woodbury's Teacher Workshop is designed for teachers who are working in the university, professional, and/or secondary school settings. Shared experiences in technique, improvisation, choreography, and body conditioning will provide participants the opportunity for artistic growth and rejuvenation. The participants will address the Utah State Core Curriculum requirements, trends in the field and issues of dance training and dance making in order to increase and elevate the skills and practices of teaching in the field.

    In response to COVID -19... 

    Here at Ririe-Woodbury, we recognize that resuming public events will be challenging as we move forward through this unknown time together. We are continually assessing and developing safety protocols to re-open following guidance from state and local governments as well as staying in conversation with other arts organizations around the country. Our goal is to do everything we can to keep our patrons, dancers, and staff safe.
