ADC has numerous success stories on the rise, with Alumni working their way through the ranks of professional ballet companies throughout the country, as well as commercial success stories of dancers who have gone on to win famed shows such as ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ or ‘America’s Got Talent’. Under Ms. Broad’s Direction, ADC opened its doors to Brazil & China in 2012, as pre-selection Invitational Sites for the Annual Competition, paving the way for a greater ADC presence in other countries.
