Developed in 1998 in collaboration with the Durham Parks and Recreation Department, ADF Project Dance is a special program designed to expose the Durham community to dance. Those involved participate in a wide range of activities, which give them an opportunity to learn and experience dance.
Over the past fifteen years, ADF Project Dance has expanded into a year-round program that now includes working with the public school system, senior centers, Duke Hospital, community centers, as well as the Durham Parks and Recreation Department. ADF Project Dance provides master classes with professional teaching artists and guest performers, behind-the-scenes tours of the ADF school and theatre production, and opportunities to attend live dress rehearsals and performances.
Valuing the importance of community and education, the ADF continues to dedicate time and resources to providing youth the opportunity to explore their full potential through dance. ADF’s Community Education Outreach initiatives/classes have encouraged numerous youth to take advantage of the many benefits a dance education has to offer.
