STUDIO INSTRUCTORS

QUALITY & PERSONALITY

Asheville City Dance has brought together some of the best dance teachers in the area. Our Instructors have been extensively trained, rigorously certified, and are registered with the National Dance Council of America or the governing bodies of their specialty style.

We believe that the best teachers never stop learning themselves, which is why all of our Instructors pursue continuing education within their craft, including advanced certifications, frequent training from top coaches, and opportunities to compete and perform professionally.
