"Our daughter loved the week she spent at your camp. We wanted her to have a fun time doing something she loves - dancing. We didn't expect that her dancing was actually going to improve as much as it did during the short time she was there. Thank You!"

"My daughter has been a camper for 4 years at ADTC. What most people don't know is that she attends 4 weeks per summer. That equates to 16 shows, 16 weeks of pure dance bliss! The first year we enrolled her for 1 week, she stayed for 4! Next year (2014) she will be a CIT and is excited for the new adventure."

"ADTC has been a valuable experience for my daughter...she has met some wonderful new friends and teachers. She has learned some excellent new dance skills and the choreography is challenging and fun. We have been very impressed with the Friday night show and now much she has learned in a week. She looks forward to returning to ADTC next summer!"

JAZZ DANCE CLASSES AT ADTC
HISTORY OF JAZZ DANCE
Since the 1920s, the term "jazz dance" has been used to describe a forever-changing form of popular and creative dance movement. Jazz dance represents our popular culture, and as our culture changes, so does the appearance of jazz dance . This means that social dances of the 1920s like the Charleston are known as jazz dances, but so are the Broadway dances of choreographer Bob Fosse, the modern dances of Alvin Ailey, the shortened sounds of tap dancing and the popping and locking movements of hip hop .
Learn awesome jazz dance moves from the best American jazz dance faculty this summer! Join our Jazz Dance Summer Camps for lots of fun, new friends and dance!
JAZZ DANCE AT ADTC OVERNIGHT CAMPS
Whether you're an absolute beginner or experienced performer, we have some of the best jazz dance faculty on the planet. Jazz style is layered over the traditional technique of ballet. Campers dance to the up-beat, popular sounds of today while working on basic body isolations of the head, shoulders, ribcage, feet and arms. In addition to learning a full performance piece, beginner dance groups master basic jazz steps, while more advanced dance groups focus on developing rhythmic awareness and individual expression.
