Stars on the Riverfront
July 24-25, 2022
This free performance takes place in downtown Montgomery at the picturesque Riverwalk Amphitheater. This performance is the culmination of our two-week summer intensive. The performance showcases the diverse range of dance with usually an excerpt from a famous ballet and then ends with a more contemporary section. Bring a picnic, blanket, and the whole family. Food Trucks will be onsite as well!
“I think it’s incredible. Their work ethic, they’re so committed to the process and the work and the development of staging this ballet. Just their joy in the work, that those two aren’t mutually exclusive,” McMillan said. "I think the culture of ADT sets that and dictates that for these dancers."

"For 15 years now, each summer Alabama Dance Theatre has called audiences to the Riverfront to enjoy a carefully curated evening of dance called Stars on the Riverfront. This year’s lineup included a panorama of dance offerings in multiple styles and including many different choreographic voices. This performance is the culmination of a two-week summer seminar of dance instruction, dialogue with dance artists, and hours of learning and rehearsing new choreography. Led by Artistic Director Kate Seale Smith, the result was satisfying to both the most seasoned balletomane and to the casual observer."
