The Alabama Dance Council is a statewide network of people who are inspired to make, teach, share, and experience all forms of dance as a powerful way to move toward a more just society. We believe that dance emboldens every body to connect, build community, and transform the experience of being human.

The Alabama Dance Council is inspired by what dance can do: move people and ideas, build awareness of culture and community, connect our state to itself in ways we may never have imagined before. We believe that all roads that lead to dance have value, that movement holds the potential for change, and change holds the potential for movement. We want everyone to experience the joy, challenge, and exhilaration of dance.

We have crafted a strategic plan for the next five years that is fueled by this inspiration, and powered by our determination to become more equitable in our practices and more anti-racist in our ethos. In addition to securing the future of ADC as an organization, this plan is focused on changing our assumptions about dance – what it is, who does it, where it happens, and why it matters. - Read more
