Join Our Company
Alberta Dance Theatre provides an outstanding and unique program to dancers in grades 2-12 in Calgary through an intense 12-week program where dancers engage in a creative process alongside professional dance artists. It is through this educational experience that dancers not only learn to create choreography and gain performance training, but also develop skills such as creative problem solving, healthy risk taking, collaboration, and leadership. Build confidence, make life long friends, and share stories through movement!
We ask that our company members take weekly dance classes while participating in our program. The ADT dancers come from studios all across Calgary! If you aren't currently enrolled at a dance studio, we have a list of where our company members attend class and would be happy to share it!
Founded in 1979, ADT is a nonprofit youth dance company that is rooted in the contemporary creative dance experience. The company features up to 45 youth artists ranging from Grades 2-12 in our annual professional production. ADT Youth Artists are mentored in a creative process to collaboratively create choreography for the show by working alongside professional dance artists in the Calgary dance community. ADT dancers learn about a professional creative process by engaging in one, resulting in an annual original show where choreography, script, music, costumes, props, and lighting design all all crafted specifically for each production.
