Fall Season  October 27-29, 2017 | The Cowles Center    This fall at The Cowles Center, Minnesota Dance Theatre turns its focus to the future. Honoring the company’s longstanding commitment to the cultivation of new dances, MDT Artistic Director Lise Houlton has commissioned three world premieres pairing beloved local artists and innovators with MDT’s exceptionally versatile performers. Drawing from their extensive performing experience with such respected local companies as James Sewell Ballet, TU Dance, and Black Label Movement and from their own distinctive aesthetic exploration, choreographers Penelope Freeh, Darwin Black, and Elayna Waxse will each create a never-before-seen work for an evening that promises to be an eclectic celebration of the Twin Cities’ vibrant dance community.

 Loyce Houlton’s Nutcracker Fantasy  December 15-23, 2017 | State Theatre    Once again, imaginative minds everywhere are flocking to Minnesota’s outlandish holiday favorite. Experience the beautiful choreography of Loyce Houlton danced by MDT company, guest artists, and children of the MDT school, with the brilliant music of Tchaikovsky in the 44-piece Nutcracker Orchestra led by Philip Brunelle. Continuing its tradition of enchanting audiences, Loyce Houlton’s Nutcracker Fantasy remains one of Minnesota’s most treasured holiday events.

Carmina Burana  January 19-21, 2018 | The Cowles Center    What’s more exciting than the portrayal of love and lust, desire and longing, combined with raucous and bawdy good fun? Watching it all spill from the stage in this sizzling collaboration, featuring a dynamic mix of MDT dancers, acclaimed vocalists, chorale members and musicians. Set to the stirring and powerful music of composer Carl Orff, Carmina Burana is a sensuous and gritty romp based on poems written by 13th century vagabond poets.

Spring Season  April 20-22, 2018 |  In-Studio 6A Playhouse  For its spring season, MDT will dive into its ever-expanding lineup of internationally acclaimed and locally treasured repertory. In the span of one evening, experience the classical and the contemporary; the quirky and the contemplative; the minimalistic and the dramatic. Venture with MDT into the familiar and the unknown as the company displays its dazzling artistic and athletic range in a varied program of work.

 Strawberry Festival: A Student Showcase  May 25 & 26, 2018 | The Cowles Center    Training tomorrow’s dancers today, MDT celebrates the talent and accomplishments of its aspiring dancers as they take the stage for the 2018 Strawberry Festival, A Student Showcase. Performing pieces especially created and selected for them, this annual show features students from every level of MDT’s Performing Arts Division, Young Children’s Division and Boys Classes.
