Salt Lake’s summer dance landscape is slowly shifting; rather than most locals going off contract and skipping town, many community dance artists go “off contract” from full-time teaching positions and use the summer as a space for premiering new work or exploring new contexts for choreography. It’s hardly a new phenomenon with Salt Lake taking many steps in that direction, but this summer the offerings were more ample as artist turnover from universities decreased and many dancers found their ways back to the Wasatch Front. . .
Ashley Anderson takes stock of the summer dance season, and looks forward to the fall, in the September 2014 edition of 15 Bytes.
