Rocky Mountain School Of The Arts in collaboration with public charity 501-c3 Rocky Mountain Dance Theatre is gearing up for this years final performances for all our 2018-2019 dancers. It is a huge undertaking to put on not one but THREE different productions but it is a labor of love. Executive Director, Elizabeth Fernandez and Assistant Director, Brittany Schneider; as well as student teachers and the dancers have worked for months to bring Cody these great nights of dance entertainment.
Masterpieces of Ballet will be Wednesday, May 8 at the Wynona Thompson Auditorium in Cody, Wyoming. This years Masterpieces of Ballet will feature segments from the classic ballets of Sleeping Beauty and Les Sylphides. RMDT Spring Company soloist dancers were cast in January and have been mastering the standard variations to pieces from both these ballets. What this means is that RMDT Spring Company soloists will be preforming the same choreography that was originally directed to these ballets and what professional ballet companies still perform today. The ability to bring the ballet to Cody is a true testament for the quality and level of training offered at RMSA/RMDT and the commitment of these dancers and families.

Spring Production will be Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11 also at Wynona Thompson Auditorium in Cody. This is the 22nd Annual Spring Production and every year is different with the dance styles of tap, hip hop, jazz, tap, and contemporary choreographed to different genres and eras of music. It is a lively night of great dance entertainment with professional lighting and staging that tops it off.
