Long Term Goals

The formation a regional touring company will give Arizona artists a chance to spread their wings and fly while ensuring they have a safety net during their young careers.



According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, dance has several meanings:

  • to glide, step, or move through set series of movements, usually to music;
  • to move quickly up and down or about;
  • to perform or take part in as a dancer;
  • an act or instance of dancing;
  • a social gathering for dancing;
  • a piece of music (as a waltz) by which dancing may be guided;
  • or, the art of dancing.

Our goal at ADF is to enable the people of Arizona to embrace all these definitions.
