Lodging and Travel

All official festival activities will take place in the performing arts center located in Downtown Salt Lake City, UT at 138 Broadway, Salt Lake City, UT 84101. With its three theatres (500-seat Jeanné Wagner Theatre, 180-seat Leona Wagner Black Box Theatre, and 75-seat Studio Theatre), studio spaces, permanent art installations, and rotating art gallery, the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center is an ideal setting for NCDP as the performance hub for Salt Lake’s artists and performing arts companies. Opened in 1997, The Rose is home to modern dance companies Repertory Dance Theatre (the festival’s Supporting Partner), Ririe Woodbury Dance Company, Repertory Dance Theatre, and SB Dance; and the Gina Bachauer International Piano Foundation. Local theatre companies Plan-B Theatre Company, Pygmalion Theatre Company and Wasatch Theatre Company also make their home at The Rose.

We arranged for a limited number of discounted hotel rooms for dancers and their families traveling from a distance.  You’ll want to make your reservations early since there is a limited number. The hotel is Residence Inn Salt Lake City Downtown, 285 West Broadway (300 S) Salt Lake City, Utah 84101, and is just a block away from the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, site of all official festival activities.  The link to make your reservations will be available soon so check back here frequently.
