The modern dance choreographer is of paramount importance at the American Dance Festival. From supporting the creation of new works and reconstructions of classic pieces to preparing dancers for careers in professional companies, ADF has a history of nurturing artists that reaches back eighty years.

In today’s 80 Faces, Director Jodee Nimerichter discusses ADF’s continued commitment to supporting emerging and established choreographers, and the profound connection the festival shares with its local Durham community. Shall We Dance, ADF’s $3 million capital campaign, endeavors to continue this legacy of supporting modern dance artists for another eighty years and beyond.
