A dance dad with a dream.

Campaign has ended


Hello, amazing friends and family! My name is Eddee, proud dance dad and self-proclaimed dance snob. For years, I've watched my incredible daughters light up the stage with their passion for dance. Now, it's my turn to step into the spotlight and create magic of my own!

I've decided to participate in RDT's "So You Think You Can Choreograph" fundraiser, a thrilling opportunity that allows me to showcase my hidden choreographic talents (or lack thereof!). It's not just about the dance; it's about supporting the incredible impact that dance, and specifically RDT, has had on my children and our community.

Dance has been a transformative force in our lives. It's not just about the twirls and leaps; it's about the friendships formed, the confidence gained, and the sense of belonging that RDT has brought to our community. I've witnessed firsthand the positive influence dance has had on my kids, and I want to contribute to the magic that makes it all possible.

To make my choreographic dreams come true and support the incredible work of RDT, I need your help! I'm aiming to raise $2,000 to cover the entry fees and contribute to the success of this fantastic fundraiser. You can support myself and RDT by:

-Donating to my fundraising campaign for Repertory Dance Theatre.

-Spreading the message to your network/sharing this on your social media.

Attending the dance performance on March 2nd! 

I appreciate any donation, big or small, as it brings me one step closer to making a lasting impact through dance. Your support not only fuels my creative journey but also contributes to the vibrant dance community that has meant so much to my family.

To everyone who donates, thank you from the bottom of my dance dad heart! Your generosity helps make dreams come true and ensures that the transformative power of dance continues to inspire and uplift our community.

-Eddee & the entire Johansen Family

RDT is honored to have these brave souls taking on the mantle of CHOREOGRAPHER for RDT’s REGALIA: So you think you can choreograph! Not only are they choreographing for a professional company (for the first time), but they are also raising funds to make a difference in our community. 

They each need to raise $2000 in order to compete in this fun and inspiring event. All funds raised through this page help to further RDT’s mission of building community through the creation, preservation, performance, and perpetuation of modern dance. Including arts-in-education programming that reaches over 50,000 students and teachers in Utah every year. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

They will each be working with a designated RDT mentor to help bring their creative vision to life. 

Once you donate, be sure to join us on March 2, 2024, for the event! You’ll see what these brave souls come up with (not to mention enjoy a fabulous party!)
