Alberta Dance Theatre provides an outstanding and unique program to dancers in grades 1-12 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 dancers are actively training while in our program. The ADT program focuses on performance and creation but taking another dance class will develop the dancer's technique, stamina, and the various skills that will enhance the ADT experience. Actively training in dance could include dancing at a studio, school dance program, or virtual programs. Our dancer’s train all over Calgary. We can provide you a list of dance studios and community partners if you need somewhere to train.

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.
