Like so many not-for-profit performing arts organizations, we continue to adapt to an unknown future. While this is likely not surprising news, DMPA will not present a traditional Dance Series in the 2020-21 season as most dance companies simply will not be touring for the foreseeable future.

We will continue to hold the seats in your season ticket package and you will be the first to know when we believe we can resume programming. 



You can swap your tickets from one production of the Dance Series Season Ticket Package to any Des Moines Performing Arts presentation in the Broadway Series, Temple Comedy Series, or Live at the Temple Concert Series.*

*If you are swapping shows into a Broadway Package Add-On, you may do this at any time. All other show swaps will begin when tickets for your desired production go on public sale. If new tickets are higher priced than original tickets, payment for the difference will be applied at the time of substitution. These requests must be made at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled curtain time. Show substitutions can be made in-person at the Civic Center Ticket Office or by calling (515)246-2322.


Only Season Ticket Holders are first in line to immediately access the best seats for Dance Series productions and SAVE UP TO 25%**. Lock in your price now with Season Tickets and avoid potential price increases throughout the season.

**Savings based on Season Ticket Holder prices compared to non-Season Ticket Holders.

You Make The Difference

"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."
