DANCE IS OUR PASSION
Asheville City Dance is the area's premier ballroom dance studio.
We offer the most comprehensive instruction in all Ballroom, Latin, Swing, Country Western, and Club-style dances. Under the artistic direction of Jake & Meghan Lavender, ACD has grown exponentially over the past seven years to now include many of the top dance instructors in the Asheville area. Beyond Private & Group Instruction, the studio is now home to the Asheville Dance Classic and Dancing with the Local Stars. For more about our history and current instructors, visit the links below.
DANCE IS FOR EVERYONE
Whether you are interested in learning a new hobby, preparing for an upcoming event, or have dreams of competing or performing - we have a dance program for you.
Our Private & Group Lessons allow students to progress at the speed and intensity of their choosing. Asheville City Dance uses the DVIDA Dance Syllabus across the board, meaning your dance education is consistent no matter the teacher or class.
Our Programs cater to Adults, Youth, and Pre-Professionals. For more information on ballroom dance lessons at ADC, check out the links below!
DANCE IS A CHANCE TO SHINE
COMPETITIONS & EVENTS
Participating in competitions & performances is one of the best ways to improve your dancing. Preparing for an upcoming event keeps students motivated and focused on a clear goal. These events are open for students of all levels - from absolute beginners through highly advanced dancers. Asheville City Dance attends many competitions throughout the year, including our very own Asheville Dance Classic.
DANCE IS A WAY TO GIVE BACK
OUR PHILANTHROPIC EFFORTS
Asheville City Dance believes in giving back to the community in any way we can.
Our annual dance competition includes the All-Arounds for the Animals event, in which all entry fees are donated to the Asheville Humane Society.
ACD is also the home of Dancing with the Local Stars, a charity dance event that pairs local community leaders with professionals for an evening of performances benefitting local non-profit organizations. In 2020, Dancing with the Local Stars raised over $85,000 for the Mountain Child Advocacy Center. For more information on both of these events, visit the links below!
