"Creating Passion Through Artistic Expression"

Sharing the Love of Dance with Students

Treat your students to an unforgettable experience with contemporary and traditional dance. Under the direction of founder and 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 invigorate the educational process by building connections between the construction and execution of dance as an art form and traditional learning techniques. Each year, Atlanta Dance Connection exposes children to the dance forms of ballet, modern, jazz, hip-hop, and African dance.
