Hold on to your seats as “Liftoff” takes us soaring with a new dance show by Idaho Dance Theatre March 9 – 12, 2023, in the Special Events Center in the Boise State Student Union. Enjoy a mix of artistry, energy and excitement as we perform works by Marla Hansen, Anna Adaska, Nathan Powell, Lemuel Reagan, Sophie Dalbratt, Libby Schmoeger and Yurek Hansen.

In “Liftoff,” a show that spans the generations with works from both Marla Hansen and her son Yurek Hansen, you will see budding new talents creating new and exciting dances. Idaho Dance Theatre has a history of nurturing emergent talent and especially now as the company enters into a new phase with the retirement of founding director Marla Hansen. In “Liftoff,” Hansen directs her last production as artistic director for the company. With her retirement, Associate Artistic Directors Anna Adaska, Yurek Hansen and Nathan Powell will take over the reins. What’s certain is that IDT will continue to provide excellent dance for Idahoans.

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.
