ADLI's activities center around assisting dance artists in passing on their work through developing Repertory Etudes, short dances based on signature works of American choreographers, available to the public with unprecedented access for study, viewing, and performance.

ADLI's keystone annual event, the Mini-Fest, brings together dancers, students, educators, and general audiences in a variety of classes, workshops, presentations, performances, exhibits, and discussions to celebrate America’s rich dance heritage together.
