“An Interrupted Tide” is a 40-minute work created by the University of Utah Tanner Dance Program’s Tipping Point Dance Company. This evening-length piece is a unique undertaking for teenage dancers. The choreography, a  collaborative creative process between the dancers and Contemporary Companies Director Diana Timothy, explores how we experience profound and sudden change as individuals and as a community. The piece features an original score created by percussionist and composer Wachira Waigwa-Stone. This event also includes performances by In Motion and Momentum dance companies with new choreography by Tanner Dance faculty members Mary-Martha Ostler and Eliza Zenger.

Tipping Point Dance Company is a program for advanced high school dancers to develop as performers and choreographers. More information about the University of Utah Tanner Dance Program’s Contemporary Companies at
