Event Length (Approximate):

1 hour, 40 minutes
includes 20 minute intermission

Deeply invested in the diverse language of contemporary dance--their audiences are often treated to a variety of choreographic styles in a single evening—this 56 year-old company harnesses a broad repertory, ranging from minimalist to multi-media dances by some of the world’s most evocative choreographers like Doug Varone, Kate Weare, Andrea Miller, Yin Yue and Ann Carlson. Under the artistic direction of Daniel Charon (Doug Varone and Dancers; Limón Dance Company), Ririe-Woodbury is committed to producing innovative, moving, and compelling work that challenges audiences’ perceptions of what contemporary dance can be.

Ririe-Woodbury was founded in 1964 by two Utah women, Joan Woodbury and Shirley Ririe, who were both professors of dance at the University of Utah. Their passions included performance, choreography, and pedagogy. This focus was accompanied by a deep commitment to dance as a valuable art form and its importance as a component of a well-rounded education for children. Over the years, the Company has grown from its beginning as a local entity, into an internationally renowned contemporary dance company, having performed in every state in the United States, as well as in South Africa, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, the British Isles, and throughout Europe.
