IDC students have the opportunity to perform through Illinois Youth Dance Theatre (IYDT), IDC's non-profit, world-class, youth ballet performance company. 


IYDT was founded in 2000 by Alyce Keaggy Brinkmann, the Owner and Artistic Director of IDC. IYDT performs two (2) productions each year' The Nutcracker in the Winter and a different production that varies by year in the Spring. Auditions are held near the start of the fall session (Session 1) for The Nutcracker and during winter session (Session 2) for the Spring production. 

Costs for participation in IYDT are separate. They are NOT included in the IDC tuition.
