We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Ring Around the Rose: Ballet West




Utah is full of grade-school girls (and boys) practicing for hours each week, dreaming of being a prima ballerina. But how can they really get a sense for what it means to be a professional dancer beyond wearing pretty costumes and standing gracefully en pointe?

Repertory Dance Theatre’s “wiggle-friendly” Ring Around the Rose Series provides a wonderful series of programs designed to get kids excited about the world of dance, movement, theater and music. This weekend, company members from Ballet West take the stage, both to delight youngsters with their abilities and to share the experience of dancing for a living. Expect a full house, so get your tickets early for an event that’s part of Ballet West’s Educational and Outreach programs. It’ll be tu-tu much fun for everyone.

Ring Around the Rose: Ballet West @ Rose Wagner Center Jeanné Wagner Theatre, 138 W. 300 South, 801-355-ARTS, Saturday, Oct. 10, 11 a.m., RDTUtah.org
