The ULTIMATE NC Dance Camp!

Dance, adventure, sun & summer fun in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina!

Welcome to ADTC's NC Dance Camp!

At our NC dance camp, you'll take 4 - 5 dance classes per-day, Mon through Fri. Classes are taught by our professional choreographers. The core dance disciplines you'll take are contemporary, hip hop and jazz (styles vary and may include Bwy or lyrical). Elective dance classes include ballet, tap & world dance.

No matter what your dance level or background, our NC dance camp curriculum is designed to challenge you. You'll be organized into groups by age & ability and get to perform in a big Friday Show.


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.

My daughter LOVED attending the camp. She made new friends, learned new dances, and more importantly, gained confidence. This was a truly positive, enjoyable experience for my daughter.

My daughter attended ADTC last summer in NC and loved it! She loved the counselors, classes and activities. This summer camp experience really sparked her love for dance and she has been dancing ever since. My daughter is already signed to go back to camp this summer. She can't wait!

Empowering camp experience!

ADTC is a wonderfully diverse and empowering camp experience! I like the mix of dance classes and non-dance afternoon outdoor activities. There is also a strong focus on girl empowerment, positivity, and confidence! Highly recommend this camp!

Two awesome summers!

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

Far exceeded expectations

5 5 1
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 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.

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!
