Mission Statement

American Dance Abroad is a national organization that connects U.S. choreographers and dance companies with international presenters and dance professionals on every continent. Its mission is to strengthen the export of American dance artists and companies by helping them to build international relationships. Learn more about the history of our organization.
Inclusivity Statement
From the beginning, American Dance Abroad has taken great care to ensure that our programs, our co-produced festival partnerships, promotion in our newsletters and other publications, and selection of individuals traveling with us are representative of the diverse fabric of what makes the U.S. unique in the world.  We believe that the richness of the American dance scene is rooted in our varied voices and diverse societal and political thinking.  Through our work we will continue to be diligent and committed to ensure that we provide equitable access to people of color, to a broad range of generations working together, to gender balance, and to reflect a the broadest geographic distribution representing American geography.   Moving forward we pledge to be more transparent and more assertive in seeking out new partners.
American Dance Abroad is grateful for the support provided by the Howard Gilman Foundation, the Trust for Mutual Understanding, The Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and our many individual donors. 
American Dance Abroad supports the full breadth of dance in the U.S.  Endorsement of any individual choreographer or company is neither stated nor implied.
