Building Center

“Building Center is a short documentary about the University of Utah’s Tanner Dance Program. Created in 1949 by Virginia Tanner, the program has taught thousands of children the joy of dance. This documentary follows the program and the dancers during a historic moment: the leaving of their beloved “studio” and the move to a new building. It also explores the teaching and relationships between dancers and teachers and captures the excitement and complexity of the annual performance at the Capitol Theatre in downtown Salt Lake City.”
