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.
The BeBe Theater is a cozy and intimate black box theater. Most of ACDT’s shows are created and premiered in this venue. The theater is also rented out to other arts organizations for their performances. The theater is a very busy place with over 100 performances a year.
The White Dog ProjectX International is the professional international touring program of the ACDT. The White Dog ProjectX links Asheville to the International art scene by creating original dance dramas in collaboration with foreign companies, choreographers, dancers, musicians and artists; by bringing foreign artists, teachers and performers to Asheville; and by sending native dancers and artists abroad.
