Wednesday, March 26th the Holladay Arts Council presented Repertory Dance Theatre (RDT) at Olympus High School of the Performing Arts. This collaboration allowed RDT to mentor students at Olympus High School (OHS) in dance and stage management. Danell Hathaway, director of dance at OHS, indicated her students rehearsed at 6:00 a.m. to prepare for their role in “Dancing the Green Map”. Students also learned from RDT’s technical staff how to prepare for and run a professional dance concert. After the performance, I watched them take the dance floor off and was impressed with their swift and focused work.
Kudos to Holladay Arts for spearheading this collaborative effort between the Granite School District, Holladay City and RDT for the "Sense of Place" dance concert. The performance was wonderful. I enjoyed seeing Olympus High School dance students performing with RDT. Holladay Mayor Rob Dahle provided a warm welcome and acknowledged Audrey Kenyon for all her efforts to pull off such an accomplishment! The entire evening created a “sense of place”. Everyone involved deserves credit for a job well done.
Holladay Arts Council and Repertory Dance Theatre are grant recipients of Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts and Parks. This collaboration demonstrates the community values of ZAP!
