2021 American Dance Festival: Together We Dance

In reimagining a dance festival in a post–COVID-19 world, ADF brings outside eight performances by some of the finest dance companies dazzling audiences today. Audiences are able to spread out in the fresh air in the award-winning Joseph M. Bryan, Jr., Theater in the Museum Park. While smaller dance performances, including ADF activations, have been hosted inside the Museum galleries and in the Museum Park, a festival of this scale is new to the NCMA. We’re bringing together art, nature, and people through dance.

Presale tickets for ADF and NCMA:

  • Member tickets go on sale Wednesday, August 4.
  • Nonmember and general public tickets go on sale Thursday, August 5.


Performances last approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.

 Following local ordinances, visitors are required to wear a mask inside all buildings, including restrooms and concession buildings. For the safety of everyone, we ask that all outdoor event attendees wear masks both outdoors and indoors. Masks will be available on site for anyone not wearing one.
