"In the months that my daughter has been dancing with ADT, she has grown tremendously due to the superb teachings and practices of this institution. We have travelled to some of the largest ballet programs in the country for training, and ADT parallels them all. I am so grateful to this community-supported non-profit for its broad dedication to the art of dance and for its personalized dedication to my most precious gift - my daughter."
