Alabama Dance Theatre

Alabama Dance Theatre’s goal is to train and educate students in the disciplined art of dance and to educate and develop the future audience for dance in central Alabama. In addition to its public performances at the Davis Theatre for the Performing Arts, ADT hosts a number of educational activities in the community which serve to build our audience and enhance the cultural life of our city.

The Alabama Dance Theatre was founded in 1986 by Kitty Seale, Artistic Director. ADT is an award winning, regional ballet company with an eclectic repertoire. The company emphasizes serious training for the pre-professional dancer. The training foundation is classical ballet drawing strongly from the Russian Syllabus.

The Alabama Dance offers classes in classical ballet (age 3 to professional level), modern, jazz, hip-hop and tap. The goal of Alabama Dance Theatre is to maintain a high level of excellence in classical ballet training. ADT is a school recognized throughout the Southeast as a positive training ground for dancers.

Three, four and five year olds take Pre-Ballet. These classes are designed to improve motor skills, to teach the relationship of movement to music and to instill an early love of dance through creative movement. First and second graders are enrolled in Beginning Ballet. These classes reinforce skills learned in Pre-Ballet and introduce techniques used in later training.

Older children (third grade and up) are placed in ballet classes by age, ability and experience. Serious classical ballet training, stressing correct placement and technique is offered at these levels. More frequent classes are required as a student progresses. Pointe classes are added when a dancer has obtained the strength and technical proficiency required.

As dance is a performance art, a school recital for all students is offered. Dancers who have begun pointe are eligible to audition for company membership thus providing further performance opportunities.
