My family had never been to a dance performance of any kind until we saw an ADF ad in the paper. We bought tickets and went that afternoon to see Pilobolus at a children's matinee. We were hooked and have been every year for the past 7 summers. The kids are fascinated by the variety of dances they have seen and have also enjoyed particpating on the stage several times. Last year, we also attended a full length performance. Attending the ADF every summer has become a great family tradition.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The children's performances. There are usually special activities for children during the performance and afterwords. We also enjoy seeing new, thought- provoking works.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very enthusiastic and friendly.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
