The 2018 competition season will mark the third year that The ADCC has partnered with Dance Dreams Powered by Gerber Tours. Dance Dreams is an invitation-only custom Broadway tour experience, offered exclusively at ADCC Member Competitions.
Winners chosen at ADCC Competition Events receive an invitation and a scholarship to attend Broadway Dance Dreams, featuring an all-inclusive five days in New York with world-class workshops led by a celebrity dancer from Fox’s hit show So You Think You Can Dance or a top Broadway professional.
Dance Dreams winners also perform as part of a Flash Mob on the streets of New York, see amazing Broadway shows and meet the performers, and go behind the scenes at Radio City Music Hall (home of the world famous Rockettes).
The Dance Dreams program has grown by leaps and bounds, from a handful of students in the first year to more than 125 dancers in 2017. And it’s set to expand further, with more than half of all ADCC Member Competitions offering the Dance Dreams Award for 2018.
Performing in New York City was the best experience ever. Learning the choreography from someone on Broadway was so cool. I'll never forget this.
— Dance Dreams Participant Amy M., Florida
In addition to providing amazing real-life experiences for ADCC Competition dancers, the partnership with Dance Dreams also helps support The ADCC College Scholarship Program.
Will Shover of Dance Machine ANDC is enthusiastic about the Dance Dreams program and what it offers to his dance competition students. In 2017, Will accompanied his winning group of dancers on their trip to New York:
“Every aspect of the week-long immersion in the heart of NYC’s Broadway District was fantastic. It was well organized, educational, and an amazing opportunity for young dancers to experience the magic of Broadway and see the sights of the Big Apple. My favorite moment was sitting next to a dancer at Anastasia as she watched her first Broadway show. I am so proud to be a part of The ADCC and Dance Dreams partnership and can’t wait to provide Award of Excellence Scholarships again this coming season.”
