Our Mission

The Alabama Dance Council (ADC) 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.

We Value

• We embody multicultural, equitable practices and embrace diverse voices in order to make dance a more just art form
• We are creating a sense of community that breaks isolation and builds belonging
• We inspire, embolden and cultivate the making, teaching, experiencing and sharing of dance in Alabama, with courage and commitment
• We are dismantling hierarchies and addressing inequities through inclusive networking in order to co-create an equitable organization
• We are building a culture of organizational transparency – inclusive of people, operations, programs, and services

Our Vision

Alabama uses dance to transform the human experience and our connections with one another.
