Life @ ADTC in North Carolina

Our NC dance camp home is Western Carolina University, located an hour west of Asheville in the Great Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina. The Asheville area is a hub for a variety of tourist attractions and exciting outdoor adventures, while the city itself boasts an inviting downtown, a thriving arts community and an array of eclectic dining opportunities.

At WCU, each room houses two campers with a private bathroom. Room & hallway blocks at our NC dance camp are organized by age and ADTC’s staff is housed in rooms on each floor, providing campers with 24-hour supervision & support.

The Western Carolina University campus provides everything you need to unwind between dancing and summer adventures: community lounges (for watching TV, doing arts & crafts and hanging out), laundry facilities, and a Dance Canteen for basic supplies, snacks, ADTC apparel and souvenirs.

Two awesome summers!

“My daughter has had two wonderful summers with ADTC in North Carolina!”

~ Michelle F., Cincinnati, OH

Far exceeded expectations

“From our first contact with ADTC to the middle of the 2nd session, the staff was empathetic, communicative, supportive and flexible. We faced a few challenges to enrollment – financial and emotional (our daughter’s previous sleepaway camp experience was a disaster) – and ADTC staff were flexible and responsive, even over the course of an everlasting game of phone tag. I think for any parent who gives his or her child to someone else to care for, the most critical tool Read More

to a successful experience is communication. I heard from the camp director regularly, and even a few extra times given our daughter’s need for additional support. The camp director listened and extended considerable effort to accommodate our daughter and help to ensure her experience was robust and memorable. But the most telling and indicative sign of our fabulous camp experience was our daughter’s immediate commitment to return the following summer. I know that every dancer at both sessions with her shared her positive experience, and it was very special to see girls who didn’t know each other create such a strong bond over shared passions. This was a result of the skilled and talented staff who touched the girls every day. Kudos to everyone at ADTC. They far exceeded the expectations we had.”

~ Marlo W., Durham, NC


“The communication and customer service is impeccable, professional and very friendly. My daughter LOVED the staff and her new friends. (She went alone and made friends there.) The values that ADTC seems to embrace are the same ones we adhere to in my family — caring, integrity, compassion, fun. We would definitely recommend it to our friends!”

~ Julianne M., Miami, FL
