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.”
