Young dancers rehearse at the Tanner Dance Program’s new studios in the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts and Education complex at the University of Utah. Some 300 dancers, ages 8-18, of the Children’s Dance Theatre performing group will dance at their annual concerts at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday, March 28 and 29, at the Capitol Theatre, 50 W. 200 South, Salt Lake City. (Tickets, $17,-$26 with half-price tickets for children, at arttix.org or 801-355-2787). The concert will feature three numbers, including a revival of a 2004 work, "Three Questions," based on a Leo Tolstoy story, about a young Chinese royal who must answer important questions before he can receive the crown, with an original score by the company’s resident composer, Tristan Moore. Mary Ann Lee, who has led the program since 1979, estimates more than 100,000 students have received dance training over the past 77 years. "Thank you for a blissful childhood," read a note Lee recently received from a grateful 25-year-old dancer.
