IDC is affiliated with Illinois Youth Dance Theatre (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. If you love to dance, come audition for our 2022 Nutcracker!
