Iowa Dance Theatre, presents Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker on Saturday, December 17 at 2:00 and 7:00 PM, and on 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 day.

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, by phone: 800-745-3000, or in person: Civic Center Ticket Office or Ticketmaster locations. Student rush tickets available at Civic Center Ticket Office.
