Idaho Dance Theatre has long been a staple of Boise's dance community, bringing innovative works to the stage. Its Spring Performance features the new works by New York choreographer and former IDT dancer Jenn Freeman, IDT Artistic Director Marla Hansen and dancer Gonzalo Valdez. Hanson's "The Mountain" will be performed alongside a score for a string quartet and center on themes like "prey and predator, growth and decay." Her "To Be Loved" is a series of pas de deux performed to Tracy Chapman jams, while Valdez's new piece is set to music by Bajofondo, an Argentinian electro-Tango group. Special guests include Ballet Idaho principal dancer Andrew Taft, who will be performing in "To Be Loved" with IDT dancer Alia Kelley.Preview night Thursday, April 16; tickets are $5-$10 at the door only for this performance.
