Reflections On The Summer In NYC Program

As one of our oldest programs, Summer in NYC continues to change lives and create opportunities for high school students. After a two-year COVID hiatus, we were ready to continue with this important summer tradition. 

Thanks to the support of a generous donor, sixteen ADT students traveled to NYC to attend some of the most prestigious dance intensives in the US. We believe this is one of the most rewarding opportunities we offer our students. Not only are they able to experience firsthand the “real dance world,” but they also gain skills that help them grow as individuals. Every one of them came back with unique experiences to share and lessons learned. They all describe the summer as “life-changing”.

We would like to share these reflections from our students and have you hear from them directly. Below is a collection of the student’s reflections on their NYC experience this summer.  We hope you enjoy them!
