Children's Dance Theatre

This company of young dancers, ages eight to eighteen, shares its performances annually with more than 45,000 Utahns. Every spring, the company showcases an original work at the Capitol Theatre in Salt Lake City. CDT is the second oldest performing arts organization in Utah and performs regularly under the auspices of the Utah Arts Council’s Performing Arts Tour, with support from the Zoo, Arts and Parks fund, and in collaboration with other arts organizations and individuals. In keeping with our mission to share dance with a broad population base, most CDT performances include matinees for school-aged children and special populations.
