Annual Benefit Party

Due to the concerns surrounding COVID-19, Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company canceled the Annual Benefit Party in person for the safety of our donors and patrons.

Please consider, co-commissioning a future work, backing our outreach and education programs, join us for some summer parties, and more! Your support has kept us looking forward for the past 56 years and is once again, vital to kicking off out 57th in good health.
