We are celebrating 47 years of dance in Asheville. The New Studio of Dance was founded in 1970. It is the school of Asheville Contemporary Dance Theatre, which performs regionally and abroad. The school prides itself in taking the novice dancer through the many stages of technical and artistic development to perform at a professional level in this culture and abroad.
