ADC maintains a Facebook page sharing videos and dance news. We invite you to LIKE US!
JOIN and interact with our Facebook Group (2700+ members and growing) where members post events, audition notices, great dance videos and breathtaking images, master classes, and more. It’s a great way to become engaged (in an immediate way) with our statewide dance community.
The ADC Pinterest page has boards on our ADC Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Dance Festival of So AZ videos and music, e-Star Covers, Photos of the Month, and outstanding Tap Performances. We hope to develop more boards with time. The Pinterest community is very large and ADC makes global connections regularly through its boards.
Throughout the years, ADC has sponsored guest master teachers, produced regional dance festivals showcasing outstanding dance artists in performances and master classes, and sponsored dancers, dance teachers and performances for thousands of school children. As we move forward, we hope to develop a scholarship program to serve those children in Arizona whose families cannot afford dance lessons and related expenses.
We extend an opportunity to you to become a part of our mission and help us connect with those who really need dance in their lives for their physical, mental and emotional well being. Dancing can save lives and provide a healthier way of connecting with others. We want to help. Join us. It will make you feel better too!
