Iowa Dance Theatre's The Nutcracker

SCHOOL MATINEE PERFORMANCE

Iowa Dance Theatre's The Nutcracker Ballet has been a holiday tradition in Des Moines since 1966 when Mary Joyce Lind staged it to Tchaikovsky's classic ballet score. Join over 200 local dancers, and choreographers representing over 20 local dance studios in a unique community collaboration bringing the story of Clara's Christmas dream to you in stunning dance.

"The dollar ticket price [for the Applause Series shows] is unbelievable. Without it, we would't be able to come. The people who support this program need to be applauded because it gives kids great opportunities."
