Adagio in the Community

Through Adagio Ballet’s community outreach initiatives and events, we aim to expose children and adults alike to the beauty of dance, instill a love for the arts, and inspire creativity and hope. Adagio Ballet is proud to be in the North Arlington community and we are compelled to give back through free and low-cost performances, National Dance Week free activities, and through support for our local organizations and schools. For the broader Northern Virginia region, our student company, ADC, performs in festivals and the professional company- in-residence, Company Danzante offers student rates for their local performances.
