Each year, over 500 dance students and artists from around the world converge on the East Campus of Duke University to discover the endless possibilities at the ADF School. Under the direction of Dean Leah Cox, the school hosts numerous summer programs including the Six Week School, the Three Week School for Pre-Professional Dancers, and the Dance Professionals Workshop

The ADF School also hosts Winter Intensives in New York City and Pasadena, CA, allowing students the opportunity to study intensively with ADF’s outstanding roster of teachers during their winter break. The nine-day Winter Intensive in New York City  is designed for students 18 and older who are interested in exploring the NYC dance scene from an insider’s perspective through classes, workshops, performances, and more. The five-day Winter Intensive in Pasadena, CA, allows dance students on the west coast the chance to experience an ADF intensive closer to home with daily classes in technique, repertory, composition, and improvisation, panels, open rehearsals, and more.
