Odyssey Dance Theatre announces its Final Shut Up & Dance Season! The last one ever!

March 2 to 12, 2022

Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center – Taylorsville

Evening Performances at 7:30 p.m. Saturday Matinees at 2:00 p.m.

Odyssey Dance Theatre (ODT) Founder and Artistic Director Derryl Yeager and his wife, Costume Designer and Costume Production Director Cheryl Yeager, have announced that this year’s Shut Up & Dance Spring Repertory Season will be Odyssey’s final spring offering, because they will be retiring and closing the doors to Odyssey Dance Theatre at the end of Thriller’s 26th Season this fall.

Odyssey will be celebrating by presenting 4 different programs in repertory. This final Shut Up & Dance will truly be one of the most amazing Odyssey Seasons ever, as they bring back some of Odyssey’s most popular and significant works from the last 28 years, and will certainly be a dance lover’s buffet, with something for everyone. Deseret News said, “Odyssey Dance Theatre’s Shut Up and Dance season only proves that it is a company to be taken seriously. Bravo!”

Shut Up & Dance is where the dancers and choreographers get to stretch their artistic muscle and really show off their abilities and different styles in smaller repertoire-style works. Derryl said, “We again stress accessibility but we are not afraid to explore more innovative choreographic styles of movement. The title says it all. Dance is an amazing form of expression that doesn’t require manuals and textbooks to understand. It communicates to all and across all boundaries.”

The ReduxNut-Cracker

December 17-23, 2014

Odyssey Dance Theatre is proud to present the return of ReduxNut-Cracker! As they have successfully done to other great classics such as Giselle and Romeo and Juliet, to rave reviews from across the globe, ODT will bring The Nutcracker to life in the present day, with the original Tchaikovsky score reimagined and arranged in a pop/hip-hop style!

Imagine Clara, as the young lady whose imagination is inspired by the technological advances of today, is drawn into her smartphone to a magical world where Drosselmeyer drives a DeLorean, the soldiers are actually robots, and the gangsta mice have a hip-hop swagga.

If you’ve been to one too many Nutcrackers, then this is the one you will want to see—a reimagined, updated, visual feast full of surprises.
