Check out what some our students had to say about their pre-professional program experience
“ADC is my dance education foundation. In preparing for college I was equipped with language, etiquette, and versatility from across the spectrum. That is what set me apart for most young adults entering a BFA program. ADC nurtured my drive and creativity to become a dance master. Dancers are unique and exceptional beings that carry with them, a limitless perception of the world. For me, that perception was fostered and expressed with the guidance and love from ADC.”
Artistic Dance Conservatory will forever be my second home, the place where I was not only able to grow as dancer but as a person. Between the welcoming students, supportive teachers, and creative learning environment ADC became my safe haven growing up. I was able to express myself through the various styles of dance accompanied by a well rounded dance education. Through private lessons I was able received 1:1 training. This allowed me to focus on my technique, perform in the styles I loved, and also create a everlasting bond with the amazing teachers I learned from. I always felt the teachers at ADC set me up for success and pushed me when it was needed. I truly believe my experiences at ADC as made me the person I am today and will forever have a piece of my heart - Angelina Gonzalez- 2021 Wagner grad and 2017 ADC alum
