Under the direction of Founder Executive Artistic Director Allyne D. Gartrell, the Atlanta Dance Connection has a history of arts education excellence. Our arts-in-education residencies and outreach programs are designed to build critical thinking skills, connect youth to themselves and their own culture, and to invigorate the educational process by building connections between the construction and execution of dance as an art form and traditional learning techniques. Each year ADC exposes children to the dance forms of ballet, modern, jazz, hip-hop and African dance.


Learn dance from the best; Dancers of Atlanta Dance Connection! Want to make New Friends Through Dance by sharing the joy of ballet, jazz and African technique with students of all ages? The program ends with a special presentation for parents, school staff and friends.



Dance: A Universal Language, is an informational, interactive demonstration and discussion of the different dance disciplines with history and descriptions of the movements provided by the Artistic Director as the dancers perform. This on-campus, fun-filled lecture/demonstration concludes with selected dance numbers from ADC’s repertoire. Student participation is included and a question/answer session with the dancers follows.
