IDC is affiliated with Illinois Youth Dance Theater (IYDT), a non-profit, world-class pre-professional ballet company. IYDT performs two ballets each year, one in the Spring and The Nutcracker in December. Most IDC students in the Academy and Pre-Professional divisions are also members of IYDT, giving them the opportunity to perform in full theater productions. Dancers in the Pre-Academy Division are also invited to dance in the productions as non-members for a small costume fee.
