Gym Access: ADF dancers have access to Duke University’s Brodie Gym, which features a pool, sauna, and full array of cardiovascular equipment and weights.   

CEU Credits

You can receive continuing education credit (CEUs) for attending Dance Professional Workshops! The workshops can yield up to approximately 4 CEUs. Forms will be made available to DPW participants seeking CEU credit at ADF. Please inquire with the ADF School office for more information. Please note that number of CEUs are subject to the approval of school districts and the final number of approved CEU credits may vary for each participant. 

All DPW participants may receive a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of the program.


ADF dancers have access to Duke University’s Lily Library, which features an enviable array of dance books, videos, and resources, including ADF archival materials.
