"My daughter enjoyed seeing her previous dance friends and meeting new ones. This was her fourth year attending and she already wants to go 2 weeks next year."
- Joyce W. ('08 - '14 Parent, ADTC Maryland)
"For the past three years, my daughter has finished her week asking to immediately sign up for next year (often wanting to attend for 2 weeks). I love how much fun she has, and the fact that she eats the food! She always meets new friends and this year brought two from her dance studio. Overall, the operation runs very smoothly and I would not hesitate to recommend ADTC to anyone and everyone."
