Founded in 1986 by Artistic Director Kitty Seale,
ADT is a progressive, world class company born
of local talent. This pre-professional program offers
our dancers the unique opportunity to step up and
perform leading roles in all of our annual productions.
Alabama Dance Theatre is honored and humbled in the shaping
of so many successful young students.
Our legacy continues every day with new and exciting beginnings. Join us for our 31st season!
Our mission statement has always been to
train and educate students in the art of dance through
rigorous, repetitive indoctrination of training
which imparts human values of commitment,
individual competitiveness and self-esteem,
thus making the transition of the young person
to adulthood less awkward and producing an individual
who is polished and prepared for the challenges inside and
outside the dance profession; further, to educate audiences
and to elevate the understanding and appreciation of art,
making a special point to target disadvantaged and at-risk children, handicapped individuals and elderly citizens.
