Our mission is to provide opportunities for the youth of our community to engage in all levels of dance. The American Dance Theatre of Long Island is positioned to provide expert training and education in the art of dance to children of all ages, from beginner through advanced levels. We offer the necessary training to our students that will develop their strength, artistic and technical abilities in the art form.
Our commitment to excellence in teaching and high quality dance education requires discipline and rigorous practice to achieve high goals of competence in technical and aesthetic aspects of dance. It is our mission to train the entire person in achievement with our attention to the students as individuals. As such, our students gain positive reinforcement of the ideals and work ethics of society at large.
Performance is central to the art of dance, both for the individual performers and for the company at large. A performance requires a personal best from each participant and the utmost cooperation from all participants, thereby reinforcing their abilities to work with others as a team toward a common goal. Those students who are seeking to become professionals in dance will gain incremental skills as they train and work toward their career goals.
American Dance Theatre of Long Island has won praise for its performances and will use this platform as part of its outreach function to share the gift of dance throughout the community. We have held ballet performances to benefit national (Make a Wish Foundation), and local Long Island (St. Charles and Good Samaritan Hospital) charities. The company will continue this tradition as we further develop our presence in the community.
