ABOUT ARTISTIC DANCE EXCHANGE
We strongly believe in dance as an art form. The hard work, passion, and devotion that comprise a great dancer is what we are training our young dancers to be. Our outstanding staff and faculty members are also passionate about their role in your young dancers’ experience with ADE, but also their dance education and growth.
Artistic Dance Exchange is the only dance convention and competition in the US to offer INTERNATIONAL exchange scholarship programs. ADE is a platform for established, upcoming, and novice dancers to explore their artistic voice. ADE generates opportunities to exchange ideas, concepts, and visions in the evolving industry and dance and performing arts.
What makes ADE unique is that we are the ONLY convention and competition tour in the US that provides the opportunity to travel overseas and perform in international dance festivals. Our partner festival locations are in Spain, Italy, and China.
Our convention faculty are among the elite on both the east and west coasts. They are not only from the competition circuit, but also within the performance community, with credits including professional dance companies, TV Shows, International Pop Stars, and Broadway shows.
ADE believes that all young and upcoming dancers need to be exposed to all forms of dance and performance environments in order to let them experience a world that is far more intriguing than just the commercial competition world.

Exciting and challenging dance classes all weekend starting Friday evening with open master classes and workshops.
