School Philosophy

ADT provides training in a variety of classical ballet styles, including Russian, French and Italian techniques, as well as various contemporary dance styles. Classes are offered for student’s ages 18 months through adult and accommodates both recreational and career pursuits. ADT strives to offer numerous dance styles, and workshops with guest artists and companies. Dance is an artistic and athletic skill. ADT instructors endeavor to help all students learn dance and theatre technique through careful attention to proper alignment, anatomical, and physiological differences.  ADT has a genuine commitment to helping each student realize their greatest potential.
