Kids’ Night Out

American Dance Festival 2010

Area youth, ages 6–17, are invited to attend any evening ADF performance for free with the purchase of a single ticket or subscription. Kids’ Night Out (KNO) tickets give patrons the ability to share their love of the ADF and modern dance with the next generation of dance-goers.

“We LOVE the Kids Night Out aspect of your season ticketing. It’s a highlight of our 7 and 10 year old daughters’ year!” Lauren Benedict, ADF Patron

*A limited number of KNO tickets will be available for each performing company. KNO tickets are not available for ADF OUT-OF-THE-BOX performances. As some programs may contain adult themes or nudity, the purchase of KNO tickets is left to the discretion of parents and guardians. Programs with known adult content will be noted.

This project was supported by the Durham Arts Council’s Annual Arts Fund and the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
