IMPORTANT: ADF 2020 Summer Season Update

It is with incredible sadness that we share that we have made the important decision to cancel the 2020 ADF season, which includes the Summer Dance Intensive, the Pre-Professional Dance Intensive, and the Dance Professional Workshops. In caring for the well-being of our community, it feels like the only option, and we need to do it now because of all of the implications of waiting longer. We are heartbroken for the lost opportunities for all of the artists, teachers, students, audiences, staff, interns, and ADF fans.

Students who have applied received more detailed information via email about refunds on payments, including any deposit and/or tuition payments, as well as deferring acceptance and scholarships. Unfortunately, we are unable to refund the $50 application fee.

As you make your way through these uncertain times, we encourage you to keep dancing. Draw upon all that you know by virtue of being a dancer, fully embodied, endlessly creative, and passionately driven.
