Berry Jr., the company’s repertoire includes original choreography in a fusion of African dance styles, contemporary, modern, jazz, hip-hop, and various cultural forms. Founded in 1974, the AADC is one of three student performing ensembles in the African American Arts Institute and a credit-bearing course offered through IU’s Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies.
