Policies as of April 5, 2022


For 89 years, ADF has served as a home for modern dance. Your safety, and that of our artists, crew, and staff, continues to be a top priority at all of the locations we present performances. Please check back on this page for the latest information. 

ADF is following public health guidance in accordance with NC Governor Cooper’s office, the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), CDC guidelines, and Duke University.

Guests at ADF performances are encouraged to wear masks.

While mask-wearing will not be enforced, guests are encouraged to wear them at all performance venues.

These policies and protocols are subject to change based on this guidance and/or artists’ special requests. Any performances specifically requiring masks and/or vaccination screenings will be listed here:

At this time, there are no ADF performances requiring masks or vaccination screenings.
