Watch the ADF Alumni Slideshow 2010-2019

Which classes did you select to take? Who were the faculty you studied with and have never forgotten? Did you perform in a work or create a work for others? Was there a particular ADF performance that changed your perspective on what dance could be? What is that unforgettable internship moment? Are you still in touch with the festival friends you danced with day in and day out? 
We have heard so many incredible memories from our alum over the years that attest to the power of a summer at ADF. We want to be sure that the next generation of dancers can have cherished experiences at ADF just like you had. 
By enrolling in a monthly donation at a level of your choice,
you are investing in ADF’s resilience for a stronger and brighter future.

These are hard times, and we understand if joining as a monthly donor is not possible right now. We want to know how you’re doing! Leah Cox, the dean of ADF, is starting a project, “I Love It When You Tell Me Stories,” which invites any member of the ADF community to tell their story. These are short, informal stories about any part of your life, told any way you want. This blog-like project will share your stories on the project website and through blog posts. If you’re interested in sharing a little bit about your world right now, find out more and sign up here.
