Each day is structured with a blend of workshop-focused classes, a class of your choice with the Summer Dance Intensive, and evening performances, events, and discussions.

Attend Performances

Attending an array of professional performances is an essential component of your ADF experience. The ADF performance season features an international roster of dance companies ranging from long-established to cutting edge. You will receive a complimentary ticket to most performances held during the workshop dates.

Studio Space

You may reserve studio space for personal research, technical practice, or creative work.

CEU Credits

You may receive Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) for attending Dance Professional Workshops. Each workshop can yield up to 4 CEUs. Forms are available to DPW participants during check-in and orientation. The number of CEUs are subject to school district approval, and the final number of approved CEU credits may vary for each participant.

By request: DPW participants may receive a Certificate of Completion or CEU Certificate at the conclusion of the program.

ADF Archived Scholarly Research

ADF students have access to Duke University’s Lily Library, which features a vast array of dance books, videos, and other resources.
