Appropriately named, Rocky Mountain Dance Theatre’s Swing Into Spring Fundraiser has evolved tremendously from its early beginnings. From its first years at the Presbyterian Church, followed by several at the Cody Auditorium, in which dance families participated in making food, setting up and tearing down; it has now transformed into a unique fundraiser held at The Geysers on The Terrace.
In 2015, Swing Into Spring became a fund raising series with 3 different types of events held over a single weekend. Each event offers fully catered meals, amazing auctions, and spectacular entertainment. A Food & Wine Pairing Event, along with a live auction and a professional auctioneer was added in 2017. This event was highly successful and has continued to be sold out for the past 2 years.
2019 brings more exciting changes, specifically to Friday Night. As Saturday Night is an adult evening, RMDT wanted to offer something for families in the area, our young RMSA dancers, and their friends. This year’s Friday Night’s event will be a FAMILY Dinner Theatre Event that will feature a special meal option for kids 13 and under, a glass of sparkling cider for those under 21, and a fun opportunity for kids in the audience to dance with the RMDT Spring Company members (no dance experience needed). “Family & Friends” tables can be purchased and filled with whoever you’d like! Friday night will still have a silent auction, but this year will also include a $25.00 Wine Pull in which everyone who participates wins.
Since it’s beginning, Swing Into Spring has provided amazing dance entertainment by RMDT’s Spring Company, but over the years it has grown to offer live music, delicious catered food with a cash bar, and great live & silent auctions. Swing Into Spring is a fun weekend many look forward to every year, not only for the unique experience, but also because it supports a local nonprofit.
If you know anything about RMDT Executive Director Elizabeth Fernandez, she is always evaluating, improving, and expanding. RMDT’s Annual Swing Into Spring Event Series is no exception.

Rocky Mountain Dance Theatre is a nonprofit organization in Cody, Wyoming that has a passion for the performing arts. Every year RMDT offers opportunities for the community to experience and participate in professional productions (like the Nutcracker & Wild West Spectacular The Musical), and gives elite dance training to area dancers. It takes a lot of funding to make these productions and programs possible. To help with this funding, RMDT has been putting on their biggest fundraising event of the year in the Spring since their early beginnings.
Rocky Mountain Dance Theatre (501(c)(3) mission is to introduce young people to the performing arts; encourage cultural development through public performance; and to inspire young dancers to learn and strive for excellence in technique, self-discipline, self-confidence, and artistic expression.
