"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."

“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."
