Tanner Dance Spring Class Registration @ Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts and Education Complex | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Tanner Dance creative dance classes at the University of Utah focus on the development of the whole child. Dancers develop technique through traditional modern and ballet exercises. In addition, they exercise their creativity and imagination as they explore the elements of dance through age appropriate movement. Dancers are given opportunities to improvise, engage in creative problem-solving, and grow in cognitive, social, and emotional ways as they interact in each class. All classes have live accompaniment by experienced and engaging musicians to expose dancers to a variety of musical genres. Ballet and hip hop classes are also offered. Satellite creative dance classes take place in Bountiful, Sandy, Ogden, Park City, South Jordan and Brigham City. Kindergarten and older classes will participate in one performance in May at Kingsbury Hall as part of the annual spring Tanner Dance Studio Show.

The Kolob Tragedy: The Lost Tale of a Canyoneering Calamity @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Jan 19 @ 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
The Kolob Tragedy: The Lost Tale of a Canyoneering Calamity @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

In July 1993, five teenage boys and three men on an LDS youth group attempted a canyoneering trip in Kolob Creek of Zion National Park. The upstream Kolob Reservoir was releasing a ton per second of water through the canyon. Though this flow surprised them at the canyon’s entrance, the leader believed that the park’s rangers had assured them that their trip was safe, so they continued. Two of the adult leaders quickly drowned; the remaining man and five boys were trapped in the canyon for five days until the Park Service rescued them. This book tells the story of the group’s tragic adventure and explores its damage suit against the National Park Service and the Washington County Water Conservancy District (owner of the reservoir). The reader is invited to consider who was to blame for this tragedy: was it an “Act of God”; or negligence on the part of the Park Service and the Water District; or poor judgment on the part of the trip’s leaders? The case settled out of court for $2.24 million, raising another question: was the amount of money that changed hands appropriate?
