ADF @DPAC: June 9-July 23

Established in 1934, the American Dance Festival is “an international magnet for choreographers, dancers, teachers, critics, musicians, and scholars, drawing them together to experiment, explore, learn, collaborate, and create in a supportive environment.”

Housed at Duke University since 1977, this year’s performances will take place June 9-July 23.

Notable among the all-start line-up are two African-American troupes: EVIDENCE and the Bill T. Jones / Arnie Zane Dance Company. This year’s season is also the last for its director of 43 years, Charles Reinhart.
