About the Alberta Dance Alliance

The Alberta Dance Alliance (ADA) is a provincial service organization that exists to foster and promote the appreciation and practice of dance in Alberta. Created in 1984, ADA provides education, awareness and advocacy for dance through our Website, Programs, Resources, partnerships, and other community and member services, by request, to meet the dynamic needs of the dance community.

 

In 1996, Alberta Community Development and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts officially named ADA as the provincial arts service organization (PASO) for the dance communities across Alberta.

 

ADA is a registered non-profit organization, incorporated under the Societies Act of the Province of Alberta.
