Ballet Des Moines will return to live, outdoor performance this weekend as they kick off their "Dance Into Spring" tour with stops in Des Moines, Iowa City and Muscatine.

Ballet Des Moines is launching their "Dance Into Spring" tour in collaboration with Hancher Auditorium in Iowa City. The tour includes outdoor performances in Des Moines, Iowa City and Muscatine this weekend. The "Dance Into Spring" tour is a financial supporter of Iowa Public Radio.
