The American Dance Festival (ADF) will announce its 77th season lineup and host a dance party on Friday, March 19th in downtown Durham at The Cotton Room at Golden Belt. The 2010 ADF season, What is Dance Theater?, will officially be unveiled at 8:00pm by Charles L. Reinhart and Jodee Nimerichter, the ADF’s Director and Co-Director, with the assistance of a video montage, providing event participants the opportunity to learn which companies and choreographers will be presented this summer before anyone else. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to enjoy an informal dance showing by local youth participating in ADF Project Dance, win valuable door prizes (including a pair of season subscriptions), and dance the night away with fellow ADF fans. Doors at the Cotton Room will open at 7:30pm. A cash bar and dining options will be available at Golden Belt.
The ADF is grateful for the support of (at press time): Our State, Pam & Isaac Green, Trinity Technical Services at Duke University, Downtown Durham, Inc., Habib Yazdi, Andrew Synowiez, and The Cotton Room at Golden Belt.
