Our Mission

Idaho Dance Theatre's mission is to create and perform superb contemporary dance that is personal, innovative, and exciting.

To realize this mission, the Idaho Dance Theatre strives to:

Employ dance artists of the highest caliber and offer a richly diverse repertory of exceptional artistry that inspires hearts and minds;

Produce performances with a total immersion in the experience of live dance using professional dancers, high production values, and frequent collaborations with a variety of artists; 

Educate young people through our Education Outreach program by presenting a unique dance performance that educates, engages, and entertains children with a positive dance experience; and

Function as a community organization dedicated to supporting professionalism, innovation, and artistry in dance.

Activites

Each season Idaho Dance Theatre performs three repertory concerts in the Special Events Center on the campus of Boise State University.  These concerts showcase the work of its two artistic directors, Marla Hansen and Carl Rowe, as well as the choreography of talented guest artists.  We have initiated a yearly national choreography competition, New Visions, in which the selected artist presents the winning work on our company and recieves a cash reward.  IDT frequently commissions new music and engages live musicians, poets, visual artists, and other collaborators.

IDT creates and performs educational outreach and rural touring to introduce dance to a wide spectrum of people throughout the state of Idaho and in the Northwestern region of the US. It is important to us that all people are introduced to dance as an art form, no matter where they live. Expanding audiences is important to the future of the performing arts.  

In 2011 we created Focus Dance Ensemble, our pre-professional company.  The company will give young, dedicated dancers the opportunity to experience the training and rehearsal of a professional company with 2 season performances and the opportunity to work with Idaho Dance Theatre's professional dancers and artistic directors.

Idaho Dance Theatre is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, incorporated in July of 1990. Our mission is supported solely from donations from individuals, businesses and grants from a wide variety of state and local organizations. For more information contact us at   info@idahodancetheatre.org
