    "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!"

MODERN DANCE CLASSES AT ADTC

 

HISTORY OF MODERN DANCE

Modern dance developed in the early 20th century when a few dancers in Europe started to rebel against the rigid constraints of Classical Ballet. Shedding classical ballet technique, costume and shoes these early modern dance pioneers practiced free dance steps.

In America, Loie Fuller, Isadora Duncan, Ruth St. Denis and Martha Graham developed their own styles of modern dance steps and laid the foundations of American modern dance steps and moves with their choreography and teaching.

 

Learn the freedom of modern dance from the best American modern dance faculty this summer at our modern dance summer camps!

MODERN DANCE AT ADTC OVERNIGHT CAMPS

Modern Dance at our ULTIMATE Overnight dance camps

modern dance classes expand the body's traditional range of motion and provide a non-aerobic workout that helps develop grace, free artistic expression and reduce muscle stress.

The four core dance classes at our ULTIMATE Overnight Dance Camps are in hip hop, jazz dance, Broadway dance & contemporary or lyrical. Although modern dance is NOT offered as one of the four core classes at our ULTIMATE Dance Camps, modern dance is often offered as a dance elective during free time at these camps.

 

Modern Dance at our Jazz Dance INTENSIVES

Jazz dance is the main focus at our Jazz Dance INTENSIVES. Modern jazz dance classes are offered at these INTENSIVE camps. Our INTENSIVE Jazz Dance Camps differ from our ULTIMATE Overnight Dance Camps only in that the dancing focuses on jazz dance styles alone (as compared to jazz in combination with other dance styles like hip hop, Broadway and lyrical). At our Jazz Dance INTENSIVES, campers take four dance classes per day that explore the many variations of jazz, including modern jazz.
