Duke staff and faculty can receive discounts on American Dance Festival and Music in the Gardens tickets.

The American Dance Festival (ADF), which runs June 13-July 20, provides a 20 percent discount. The festival, now in its 86th season and 42nd at Duke, includes 38 performances featuring 25 companies and choreographers at five venues. 

“We are thrilled to present both new and treasured works of dance,” said Jodee Nimerichter, ADF executive director. “It will be a summer of looking at history while also looking forward on this dynamic, evolving art form.”

For the schedule and discount, visit americandancefestival.org and enter promo code EDU19ADF. Your DukeCard must be presented at the Duke Box Office window to receive the discount in person. 

Also in June and July, make time to experience “Music in the Gardens,” a series of family-friendly outdoor concerts presented by Duke Performances on select Wednesdays in Sarah P. Duke Gardens. 

The ticket price for employees and students to each of the six shows from June 12 to July 24 is $5. All shows start at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now. Lawn chairs, blankets, and picnics are encouraged.
