    Odyssey’s Spring Repertory Season, where the dancers stretch their artistic muscle and create new, exciting works is a dance lover’s buffet, with something for everyone.  Deseret News said, “Odyssey Dance Theatre’s Shut Up and Dance season only proves that it is a company to be taken seriously.  Bravo!”Shut Up and Dance is where the dancers and choreographers get to stretch their artistic muscle and really show off their abilities and different styles in smaller repertory-style works. Odyssey Founder and Artistic Director Derryl said, "We again stress accessibility but we are not afraid to explore more innovative choreographic styles of movement. The title says it all. Dance is an amazing form of expression that doesn’t require manuals and textbooks to understand. It communicates to all and across all boundaries."Act I - New Repertory Style WorksAct II - SledgehammerThis 40-minute Peter Gabriel Suite, choreographed by Thriller Creator Derryl Yeager, was one of the first major works created for Odyssey.  Sledgehammer is a blue-collar rock ballet--an ode to the common man that takes the audience on an exciting, touching, heartbreaking and heartwarming journey through everyday life. Danced in work jeans and t-shirts, this piece includes such Gabriel classics as Sledgehammer, Don't Give Up, In Your Eyes, Mercy Street, We Do What We're Told, and Big Time.March 2 7:30 pm; March 5 2:00 pm; March 8 7:30 pm; and March 11 7:30 pm
