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.
