The Conservatory instructs students of all ages and skill levels in ballet, pointe, modern, contemporary, jazz, tap, acrobatics, musical theater, street jazz, and hip-hop style dance, in a state-of-the-art facility in East Longmeadow Massachusetts. Students may choose a pre-professional, competitive, or recreational course of study. Enrollment is open year-round, which allows students to register at any point during the year. The school is home of the Artistic Dance Conservatory Youth Ensemble, a non-profit dance troupe that focuses on enhancing the availability of dance in our local communities. The group was recently recognized for their performance of Charlotte's Web at several local schools and organizations in the community. Additionally, the Conservatory is the home of the Eclipse Dance Company, a professional contemporary dance company. Eclipse and the ADC Ensemble are under the umbrella of ADC ARTS CORP, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation organized in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
OUR MISSION: To give our students not only a dance education, but to nurture the values and self-esteem that dancers develop.
To inspire our students to make a commitment to their dance education by always striving to do their best; by being respectful of conservatory and dance training etiquette; by developing and demonstrating an appreciation for their art; and, ultimately, by seeking out collegiate or career opportunities within the dance education or performance fields if they choose. To guide parents and instructors in instilling a belief system in the students that promotes positive attitudes and a strong work ethic that leads to the setting and achieving of goals - qualities that have the potential to extend beyond their dance training into other aspects of their personal and professional lives. To inspire students, dance company members and instructors to reach out to our local communities by sharing their vision of dance through the art of movement. To consider the needs of our local communities by providing financially accessible and high-quality dance education. To share our love and knowledge of dance with everyone in our community.
