ADF's programs are developed based on its mission to: encourage and support the creation and presentation of new modern dance works by both emerging and established choreographers, and professionals in dance-related fields; to preserve our modern dance heritage through continued presentation of classic works as well as through archival efforts; to build wider national and international audiences for modern dance; to enhance public understanding and appreciation of the art form and its cultural and historical significance; to provide a sound scientific and aesthetic base for professional training and education of young dancers; and to maintain a forum for integrating and disseminating information on dance and dance education.
The International Choreographer's Residency (ICR) program runs concurrently with the summer festival. ICRs may choose from a wide range of classes that are part of our Six Week School. In addition, ICRs attend all performances in our season, have access to all festival events and resources, and become part of the international community of teachers, dancers, choreographers, and performers that come each year to ADF. The ICR Faculty Advisor will lead ICRs in a weekly session where they will have the opportunity to further develop their choreographic ideas, discuss the performances and choreography through the lens of their respective backgrounds, and to solicit peer feedback on their work.
While in residence, ICRs have the opportunity to teach a master class and to show their work in an informal showing, as well as to audition for repertory and performance ensembles.
