ADC Company

AVANTI’s Performance Company is a national award-winning collective of young artists, ages 3-18, who show extreme devotion to dance and aspire to take their abilities to the next level. Company members train extensively in classical dance (ballet and pointe) and commercial dance (contemporary, modern, jazz, lyrical, tap and hip-hop).

As a result, ADC Performance Company members become extremely versatile, well-rounded dancers and performers. Company members have the opportunity to take a wide variety of technique and style classes throughout the week, including choreography sessions with top guest and faculty choreographers, where the dancers work fervently on pieces which are presented at competitions regionally and nationally, as well as having the opportunity to attend in-house master classes and workshops taught by respected industry professionals throughout the year.

While Performance Company is a competitive dance company, members are also able to contribute through their performances at community charitable events. Company members gain more than just dance training; they are a close-knit family who share a unique bond in their passion for dance. Drawing strength from each other, they gain confidence and an outstanding worth ethic that will continue to be a solid foundation helping them in all aspects of their life.
