Believing that dance is for everyone, Alaska Dance Theatre strives to keep its programs affordable to a wide range of the population.

The School is based on classical ballet with a syllabus reflecting a blend of Vaganova, Checchetti, and other Classical Ballet techniques, as well as a variety of contemporary dance styles. Classes are offered for students age 3 through adult who enjoy dance as well as those who would like to pursue a career in the field. ADT School Faculty and School Director assign appropriate placement of all the students. Our accompanist program provides live piano music for many ballet classes. Workshops with guest teachers and residencies with professional dance companies are offered throughout the season

The School of Alaska Dance Theatre instructors endeavor to help all students learn dance technique through careful attention to proper alignment as well as anatomical differences and physiological conditions. Pedagogy is introduced at a pace matching the student’s ability to physically and mentally absorb the challenge of more strenuous activity. Students and parents should be reminded that dance is an artistic and athletic skill. Class curriculum is based on a nine-month academic year.

CAMP LOCATION: Our year-round office is located in the heart of Chicago, in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. Our trips are run in a multitude of domestic and international locations. Our staff training is held every year in Michigan, several weeks before trips are scheduled to depart.

CAMP FACILITIES: Facilities and accommodations vary from trip to trip.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: The Road Less Traveled as an organization was founded by Jim and Donna Stein in 1991, and has been successfully running safe, exciting, life-changing trips for teens ever since. Both Jim and Donna are still the current directors, and are integrally involved in every single aspect of the company. In the summer, they are on call 24/7, available both to parents as well as to our leaders in the field.

We are an ACA accredited organization with an impeccable track record. We believe in the process of accreditation. It allows us to compare our standards to other professionals in the industry. Our accreditation allows us to follow specific standards related to leader screening including use of application forms, reference checks, personal interviews, work history review, and background checks.

Many years ago, we were the first company serving young adults to require that all leaders have a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) medical certification. WFR training is far more advanced than standard first aid or wilderness first aid. In addition to this certification, we carry extensive first aid kits on all of our programs that include antibiotics and epinephrine. Contents, protocols, and standing orders are reviewed and updated every year by our Medical Director who is an MD.

Since our inception, RLT has been on the cutting edge of technological advances in communication. We began carrying Iridium satellite phones on all of our programs as soon as they were available. Today we continue to carry the latest in emergency communication systems. According to geographic location, programs are equipped with satellite phones, ground-to-air radios, and/or cellular phones providing the possibility of 24-hour access to medical help in case of emergency.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We offer many need-based scholarships and financial aid packages. Visit Geography of Hope's website to learn more: This Website Link

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): We offer custom trips as well as family programs in the winter, spring, and at the end of the summer. Please contact us at 773-342-5200 with any questions.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Flights, travel arrangements, and other trip-specific information is available on our website.
