Asheville Contemporary Dance Theatre is a non-profit professional dance company created in 1979. As western North Carolina's first professional modern dance company, we believe that everything everywhere is dance and everyone is a dancer. We explore the through lines that exist between cultures, our society, and our world. Through art and inspiration, the company illuminates the 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.
ACDT performs up to 80 times a year in Asheville, its hometown, the southeastern United States, and abroad (France, Canada, Cuba, Mexico...). Our repertory consists of both full-length modern dance ballets geared toward more mature audiences such as Looking for Frida and The Last Dance of Mata Hari as well as shows geared towards children and general audiences such as The Legend of Chocolate and Fables. ACDT is the producer of several dance and performing arts festivals in Asheville (The Asheville Fringe Arts Festival, the 48 Hour Dance Project, and The Men's Dance Festival to name a few) and through White Dog ProjectX International, ACDT's professional international touring program, they bring in artists from around the world to share their talents and enrich the Asheville community.
