Idaho Dance Theatre to premiere ‘Liftoff’ March 9

The Idaho Dance Theatre will present their new show, “Liftoff” from March 9 – 12 in the Special Events Center in the Student Union Building. The company will perform works by Marla Hansen, Anna Adaska, Nathan Powell, Lemuel Reagan, Sophie Dalbratt, Libby Schmoeger and Yurek Hansen.

The show spans generations, with works from both Marla Hansen and her son Yurek Hansen, and emerging dancers creating new and exciting work. This new generation is especially important now as the company enters into a new phase with the retirement of founding director Marla Hansen. “Liftoff” is the last production Hansen will direct as artistic director for the company. With her retirement, Associate Artistic Directors Anna Adaska, Yurek Hansen and Nathan Powell will take over the reins.

Idaho Dance Theatre would like to thank supporters: Boise City Department of Arts and History, Boise City, Boise State University School of the Arts, Focus Physical Therapy, Chelsey Design and the Boise State University Department of Theatre, Film and Creative Writing.

Purchase tickets at or at the Special Events Center Box Office an hour before each performance. Idaho Dance Theatre provides discounted tickets for students, seniors and military personnel.
