Inspiring Testimonials from our Dance Camps

Absolutely Loved It.

★★★★★
5 5 1
This was my daughters first year at ADTC. She attended the Sparks Glencoe, MD. location. She absolutely loved it. The first thing she said to us was "I want to do two weeks next year". This camp builds confidence. All of the dance teachers and counselors were friendly and supportive. It was a wonderful and memorable experience for our daughter. We give it an A+. We will see you next year for a two week stay! kardun4@aol.com

6th Year! 1st as CIT!!

★★★★★
5 5 1
This was my daughter's sixth year at ADTC and first at the Wisconsin location and first as a CIT. As always, she had a wonderful experience with the counselors and with her fellow campers. The dance program at the end of the week was outstanding and showcased all they had learned during the camp. As a parent, I appreciate the great communication with the ADTC counselors and staff. They are always able to answer all of my questions and assist with any special requests/situations we've had over the years. I also appreciate that the campers unplug from personal electronics and social media during the week so they can focus on personal interactions. Once again, ADTC exceeded our expectations. Can't wait till next year!

Blown Away!

★★★★★

This was my ten year old daughter's first year at ADTC and she attended at Kerrville. We were blown away by the showcase Friday night and her growth as a dancer. Since she has been home, we have been astounded by her growth as a young woman. I cannot say enough about the quality of the program, the program director and the counselors. She has already asked to return next year. koneill@txkusa.org
