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.”

Derryl Yeager on air at iHeart Media

Derryl Yeager visited the iHeart Media studios as he promoted Odyssey Dance Theatre –  Winner of the Best of State in Dance award for 14 straight years, and the Premiere Dance company that’s brought you smash hits like Thriller, Romeo + Juliet and in February 2020, A Midsummer Night’s Dream… in VEGAS! A must see!

A little on the “Wild Side!?” You bet!!

Salt Lake Magazine says, “ODT’s Redux Nutcracker is a Dance on the Wild Side…”

“You all know the story of this ballet: It starts when Clara (Bailey Evans) is given a Nutcracker by Drosselmeyer (Diego Ballesteros).

Or you thought you did: Clara throws the nutcracker away and Drosselmeyer replaces it with a cell phone. Derryl Yeager conceived, directed and choreographed this quirky production. This is the seventh year the alternate show has been performed—to the delight of ODT regulars and new fans each year.”
