After check-in on Sunday, you'll participate in a "dance screening" where you'll learn two short dance combinations. This informal evaluation helps our teachers place you in dance groups for the week.
We want everyone to be comfortable in their dance classes. If you feel your group is too advanced, you can easily switch to a lower level by telling the Program Director. If you wish to move to a higher level, you may have a chance to audition for this privilege (subject to offering).
"So, if I'm a very experienced dancer, will the dance classes be challenging enough?"
Definitely. ADTC staff members are accomplished dancers and teachers that you'd never have the opportunity to work with at your home studio. They're Radio City Rockettes, Broadway actors, backup dancers and TV performers. If you're a competitive dancer, you'll be lucky to spend a week learning from choreographers of this caliber!
"So, if I've never danced before, will I be the only one?"
Maybe. But you won't be alone. ADTC is a tight-knit, all-girl community where everyone supports one another, regardless of level. We say we're a dance camp for all abilities, and we mean it! We have many campers who attend ADTC more for the summer camp experience and to spend a week learning cool moves. This way you can assess if dance is something you'd like to pursue back home!
