The American School of Dance (dba: American Dance Training Camp) was founded as a Fairfield County, CT dance school in 2002 by recent college graduate, Lindsey Fadner. Lindsey believed a summer dance camp near her family's ski condo in Stratton Mountain, VT might be a fun idea and that summer "ADTC" held 3 weeks of camp. Nearly 100 dancers from the Fairfield County area attended, most of whom danced at the American School of Dance during the year.
Just two years later ADTC in Stratton Mountain offered five sessions to more than 250 campers from all over the country. In addition, 2006 marked the year that ADTC expanded west to Squaw Valley, CA, offering three sessions to over 100 campers.
By 2007 American Dance Training Camps operated in four states nationwide and sold more than 750 camper weeks. 2013 marked our tenth anniversary (11th summer!), and we're thrilled this business has been able to offer a lifetime of friendships and memories to so many dedicated dancers and campers. We've seen some of our girls begin as 10-year-old campers and work their way up to Counselors-In-Training, Junior-Instructor-Counselors, and even Assistant Program Directors.
Now we offer nine overnight dance camp locations as well as custom hometown dance workshops, dance choreography & elective dance classes in a wide variety of other dance disciplines.
