The formal performance space in the Marriott Center for Dance, The Hayes Christensen Theatre, was named in honor of Elizabeth R. Hayes and William Christensen, in recognition of their outstanding contributions to dance and the University of Utah.
The 333-seat professional theatre, shared by the Departments of Modern Dance and Ballet, has 14 rows of seating steeply raked to permit all audience members an excellent view. On stage left is a quick change room, restroom, and a ballet barre with an electric-radiant panel to warm dancers’ legs and feet.
Our versatile yet intimate theatre can accommodate a wide-variety of live and unique performances. There’s not a bad seat in the house.
The Hayes Christensen Theatre has hosted lectures, conventions, lunch meetings, auditions, rehearsals, concerts, and live events to name a few. In addition to the Theatre, The Marriott Center for Dance has space and studios to accommodate every activity.
