C. Smith is one of the founding members of RDT. Her powerful
soaring solos under the deep saturated lights at Kingsbury Hall
in Salt Lake were absolutely thrilling.
Note of Introduction
Repertory Dance Theatre was my introduction to live Modern Dance
in the late 1960's. I had seen The Nutcracker danced
by what would become Ballet West in elementary school, but RDT
assaulted my teen aged senses with rich lights and eclectic
music in service of remarkable male and female bodies which
seemed to fly in the air as often as they lightly stepped on
the stage, or rose and fell in fluid postures which swept me
away with emotions I never suspected could be articulated with
have watched RDT at every chance since then, and dedicate this
page to their fabulous work. I have made links to their own
website, plus an additional page where I tell a little more
about their shows, and the contacts with them which changed
the course of my life.
