The Alabama Dance Theatre was founded in 1986 by Kitty Seale, Artistic Director.
We are located in Alabama's "Capital of Dreams" at the Armory Learning Arts Center
on Madison Avenue. ADT is an award winning, regional ballet company with an eclectic repertoire
that includes 19th century classics as well as new modern and contemporary works.
The company emphasizes serious training for the pre-professional dancer.
The training foundation is classical ballet drawing strongly from the Russian Syllabus.
Our regional company started out in 1986 with six advanced dancers who were committed
to creating a new community space for dance and bringing quality performances to central Alabama.
In the past 31 years the company has grown to include approximately 40 company dancers and over
300 students in our school.
In addition to its public performances ADT hosts a number of educational activities
in the community which serve to build our audience and enhance the cultural life of our city.
