BRING IT HOME
Adaptations Dance Theater's annual summer dance concert
that brings home dance artists with close ties to Hawai'i
One of the driving goals of ADT has been to sustain and contribute to the art movement in Hawai'i by offering a home to professional contemporary dancers, as well as create an outlet through which world-renowned dance can be regularly experienced by the local community. Through Bring it Home, ADT hopes to inspire a culturally-dynamic and continually growing community of dance on Maui by bringing home professional dancers to share their gifts with the community that raised them, as well as giving performance opportunities to dynamic, professional Maui resident artists.
