Asheville Contemporary Dance Theatre (ACDT) is a non-profit professional dance company created in 1979. We believe that everyone is a dancer and through art and inspiration, the company illuminates the points of intersection that exist on both intellectual and emotional levels, and our diverse repertory reflects both traditional and experimental forms of modern dance.
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.
