Springville resident Thayne Jasperson, who was eliminated last week on the Fox reality show "So You Think You Can Dance," will teach at Odyssey Dance Theatre's 11th annual "Dance Utah!" Wednesday through Saturday at the McKay Events Center on the campus of Utah Valley University (formerly UVSC) in Orem.
Workshops include daily classes in jazz, funk and rhythmic stomp (ages 12 and older study ballet, tap and lyrical jazz, too), culminating in a showcase where students will perform choreography and present the new skills they have developed.
Registration form and additional details can be found at www.odysseydance.com. Participants can also register at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday at the McKay Center.
Jasperson, 27, was one of two Odyssey dancers selected for the final 20 on "Dance." Matt Dorame, 22, was eliminated July 3.
