Sunday, December 18 at 2:00 PM at the Des Moines Civic Center. There are also two special one-hour performances for school children on Friday, December 16 during the school
This family- friendly ballet is a holiday tradition in Des Moines and is unique because it is a community collaboration with choreographers from 9 different area
dance studios and a cast of over 260 dancers from over 30 different dance studios. Our production varies slightly from year to year to utilize fully the dancing talents of the
cast which range in age from 8-adult.
This year we will again feature as the Sugar Plum Fairy a dancer who "grew up" in Iowa Dance Theatre productions and
has gone on to a professional ballet career. We are very proud of all the dancers who have graced the stage in IDT productions over the past 34 years and especially of those
who became professional dancers all over the country.
Tickets for these performance range in price from $17.50-$52.50 and may be purchased online at
DesMoinesPerformingArts.org, by phone: 800-745-3000, or in person: Civic Center Ticket Office or Ticketmaster locations. Student rush tickets available at Civic Center Ticket
