Rooted in History. Continuing the Legacy.

Minnesota Dance Theatre’s history spans 54 years, and the company maintains an energetic momentum propelling it forward as the flagship dance organization in the Twin Cities. MDT presents masterful and inspiring dance, catapulting its art form into the future while honoring its rich legacy. 

We invite you to join us in our effort to continue preserving and presenting MDT's signature masterworks, from Loyce Houlton's Nutcracker Fantasy, a classic since its premiere in 1964, to Carmina Burana, celebrating its 40th Anniversary Season. 

Your gift of any amount to the Masterworks Fund will go directly towards keeping these signature works alive for future generations.
Loyce Houlton's Nutcracker Fantasy

Imaginative minds flock to one of Minnesota's most treasured holiday events to experience beautiful choreography and the brilliant music of Tchaikovsky. This timeless production continues its tradition of enchanting Twin Cities' audiences.

"A marvel of balletic storytelling." - Star Tribune

"Continues to reign as the gold standard of 'Nutcrackers' in Minnesota." - Star Tribune

Carmina Burana

Carmina Burana brings vibrant energy to a timeless theme. This dynamic production brings the earthly rumblings of love and lust, mixed with the human pangs of fortune and fate, to a fully expressive celebration in a hedonistic romp of bodies, music, and movement.
