The Company

Formerly known as Children in Dance, Alberta Dance Theatre has been a part of the Calgary dance community since 1979. 


As many as 50+ young performers, Grades 2-12, create and perform in ADT's annual dance production. Children's literature provides the basis for the productions and original music is commissioned. As a result, a rich tradition has been established that provides imaginative, engaging and affordable family entertainment to Calgarians. Works of the company have also been performed around the world in Brazil and The Netherlands, and province-wide in Edmonton, Banff and Lethbridge.


Alberta Dance Theatre is a non-profit, non-competitive performing company for youth based in Calgary.

Our season runs from September (the first Sunday after the Labor Day weekend) to the last week in November or first week in December. Also included are two (one day) workshops in June and March. Auditions are held each spring.
