Iowa Dance Theatre’s Nutcracker is choreographed and directed by a team of dance professionals from Des Moines and the surrounding area. This collaboration is at the heart of fulfilling IDT’s mission. This year, our Nutcracker cast will feature over 250 dancers from 36 dance studios from throughout central Iowa.
It’s 21st century skills that they need to have the rest of their lives. It’s not just something that when they leave fourth grade, they are done with it.
