    About Us

    ATLANTIC DANCE THEATRE Our goal is to present, support, and enrich dance offerings in the region. From 1985-2008 Atlantic Dance Theatre, a nonprofit organization based in New Bern, NC, presented professional dance and music performances, school programs, and masterclasses in North and South Carolina. In 2018, former board members Elizabeth Pope, Joan Taylor, and Paige Whitley-Bauguess decided to bring ADT's professional dance events back to the community beginning with a March 2019 music and Baroque dance concert "Belle Danse,” performed at New Bern's Stanly Hall ballroom. This season's offerings include a March 28, 2020 concert "Bach and Forward" as well as public school informal performances. In April 2020 Kimberly Craigie-Blonn, professional dancer and dance educator in our community will assume the role of leading the company as Artistic Director. She will fulfill ADT's current goals and strive to further dance education opportunities in the community. Kimberly will be supported by Elizabeth Pope as Executive Director for administration. 2020 BOARD OF DIRECTORS include David Blonn, Kimberly Craigie-Blonn, Adia Coleman, Ann Dale, Chuck Dale, Kit Jordan, Elizabeth Pope, Joan Taylor, Paige Whitley-Bauguess.
