altThe experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. Former Somerville NJ Gotta Dance student Hillary-Marie Michael, now director of Jersey Tap Fest, says, “From start to finish … it is an excellent way for dancers to understand both the discipline and fun involved in a professional ballet production.”

Rocky Mountain Ballet Theatre School opened in 1998. Charlene Campbell, dancer and choreographer, is director of the school and teaches intermediate and advanced level classes. She also serves as artistic director of Rocky Mountain Ballet Theatre. The school’s integrated approach to dance brings students into the world of dance through a variety of explorations that actively engage them in perception, research, reflection, and discussion. Our curriculum develops and assists students in discerning and strengthening basic proficiencies that readily apply across the curriculum and throughout life, developing skills of analysis, abstract thinking, interpretation and problem-solving that are as relevant to studying dance work as to analyzing a work of literature or exploring physics. The curriculum includes ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, pre-ballet, and creative movement. In 2003, the school moved to its present location which has three large studios, sprung Marley floors, and spacious lobby and dressing areas.

altOver the past 65 years, the Fine Arts Building at the University of Montana has housed the student union and classrooms, but the most impressive portion of the building has always been the known as the University Theatre.

They voted in 1928 to impose a $1 per quarter fee on themselves to meet the campus need for a dance hall, large auditorium, larger bookstore and place to gather for relaxation and entertainment.The University Theatre opened in November 1935.Students were delighted when they could finally occupy the building they had been waiting for since 1928. The official opening, its dedication ceremony, musical entertainment, speeches and a dance kicked off Homecoming Weekend on November 22, six months after the death of President Charles H. Clapp, who had been one of the building's greatest supporters

On Friday, May 11, 2012 the University Theatre was renamed in honor of former UM President George Dennison and his wife, Jane.
