Samuel H. Scripps Studios

The year-round programs at ADF’s Samuel H. Scripps Studios are dedicated to providing a sound scientific and aesthetic base for all ages and all levels of dance training, from beginning to professional. Our studios serve as a center for creative activity in Durham, North Carolina in which students learn in a welcoming and non-competitive environment from faculty who are experts in their fields. Our programs offer a variety of classes, for the dancer and non-dancer alike, designed to strengthen the body, increase flexibility of movement, and foster an appreciation of dance.
