Auditions for our Season 8 teams begin July 5th with our summer program! ADC’s team audition is not a “one-day” event.  In effort to get to know all auditioning dancers better and assess their strengths and talent, we structure our audition process for incoming team dancers in a class setting over the summer period which can be flexible for the dancer and family (see further details below). 

First step is to complete the online application.  This helps us identify each dancer looking to join our company.  There will be a $25.00 application fee paid at the time the application is submitted.

All applications submitted will be reviewed and a member of our staff will contact the parent(s) to answer any further questions and offer summer class/schedule suggestions.


For ages 8 and above, attendance of a minimum 24 classes during our six-week summer session (8 of which must be ballet), PLUS attendance of ADC Summer Intensive (July 26-28, 2022) in the appropriate age group.

For ages 6 -7, attendance of a minimum of 16 classes during our six-week summer session (4 of which must be ballet) PLUS attendance of our ADC Summer Intensive (July 26-28, 2022) in the appropriate age group.   “Camp” classes for this age group, can also count toward requirements.

For ages 5 & under, attendance of a minimum of 8 classes during our six-week summer session (4 of which must be ballet).  Summer Camp attendance for this age group, can count towards requirements.

Options for summer classes would include enrollment (see link below) or purchase of class card and dropping into classes based on dancer/families’ schedule just as long as audition requirements are fulfilled.
