Dear ADT students and families,
For our new families, what is ADT's Company?
ADT’s Company is a program for students who enjoy performing and immersing themselves in dance. The Company provides mentorship and performance opportunities emphasizing our commitment to community engagement and artistic excellence.
What amazing opportunities are available for ADT's Company this year?

Dancers experience team building experiences and events.
Dancers receive access to represent Alaska Dance Theatre and experience unique competition opportunities, such as Nuvo Dance Competition and Youth America Grand Prix.
Dancers get access to outreach opportunities in the community.
Fun Company logo gear to show off!
Who is eligible to participate in ADT's Company?
Company is open to all students who are going into a Children's Ballet 4, Intermediate level of dance, or higher.
Dancers are required to take 3 classes or more a week, no specific genre required!
It is recommended that dancers do not have multiple conflicting commitments during the week and on the weekends. ADT's company is a year long commitment with many hours of opportunity to grow as a dancer.
What's new this year?
In order to simplify things during these unusual times of social distancing and safety precautions, ADT will not be holding company auditions this year. Instead, we will place students into company ranks based on classes attended and instructor recommendations.
Company members will have more flexibility this year to pick and choose what performances work best for their schedule.
ADT is reaching out to include more guest artists and leading industry experts in company classes and activities.
New mentoring opportunities provided by ADT staff to help every dancer grow and reach their goals.
Looking for more information? Join me for a conversation on all details for this year's ADT company on Friday, June 19th at 5:00 pm via Zoom. Please RSVP by sending me an email.
Thank you for your time and we look forward to seeing all of our wonderful dancers back and working hard at ADT!
