In the fall of 1989 Marla and Fred Hansen, former dancers with the American Festival Ballet, were invited to do a concert in Jackson, Wyoming at the Red Garter Theater.
Fred and Marla invited Carl Rowe, a modern dancer living in Sun Valley, to join them as a performer and choreographer. In 1991 Carl Rowe became a co-artistic director along with Marla and Fred. Marla became a full-time, tenured professor at BSU. During this time Carl and Marla continued to choreograph, direct, and manage the company, expanding their seasons to three annual concerts and touring Idaho and Oregon. A Boise native, Yurek has received all his training in the city of trees, particularly with his parents, Fred and Marla Hansen, the BSU Summer DanceFest workshop with numerous guest instructors, and study in multiple martial arts and dance forms: capoeira, break dancing, tai chi, aikido, and hip hop. After graduation Caitlin trained with Carol Roderick as a Ballet Idaho trainee, studied at Eagle Performing Arts Center, and then began comprehensive training with Marla Hansen at Boise State.

Rowe and co-artistic director Marla Hansen founded IDT in 1989 along with her husband, lighting designer and then-dancer Fred Hansen.
By the mid-'90s, Marla Hansen started teaching at Boise State University, where she now heads the dance program and where the company has its rehearsal home, though it is still an independent entity. Hansen comes from the world of ballet, while Rowe is deeply grounded in Modern. "Many people don't know the extent of his impact as a teacher, choreographer and mentor," Hansen says. Hansen will take over those duties and do her best to keep the company going, she says. For financial reasons, they will need to go from a full-time to a part-time company manager after this season. "There are so many talented dancers here who need a company like this," Hansen says. "It's just been hard to get the community support." Artistically, she plans to focus on collaborations, bringing in new choreographers - including Rowe when he's ready. Though he does see that happening in the future, now it's time for a new direction, he says - for example, art. Rowe also is an accomplished painter, and one of Boise's signature visual artists. He is known for iconic paintings of the Boise Foothills but he hasn't had the time to pick up a brush in the past few years. He also would like to see if other companies would want to produce his choreography. Now with more time, it's like opening a door, he says. "I don't know what's on the other side yet," he says.
