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.

Daughter LOVES ADTC

★★★★★
5 5 1
My daughter absolutely LOVES ADTC. She is a beginner dancer and feels comfortable spending 2 weeks with more experienced peers. She gains independence and her confidence level rises 2 fold when she is at ADTC camp. This will be my daughter's third summer at the NC location. The counselors and teachers are encouraging, loving and fun. [email protected]

Really Enjoyed It!

First Camp Experience

★★★★★

This was my daughter's first camp experience ever and so I started with a lot of hesitation. The camp was recommended by my daughter's friend and her mother. Wonderful all around experience from the dancing to all the additional activities and team building - she absolutely loved it. She made new friends and loved her dance instructors. Very impressed with communication and connection with photos from daily activities. Seeing her smiling and happy self gave me comfort. She is ready to go back next year. Thank you to everyone that made her experience so memorable. [email protected]

Best Week Ever

★★★★★
5 5 1
The service I received prior to my daughter attending camp was great. Everyone went above and beyond to help you with any needs you may have. This was the first year my daughter attended this camp and she was apprehensive about going. When she arrived and talked with her roommate and met all the other dancers and teachers she immediately felt better and on Saturday when I picked her up.... she said to me, "Mom this was the best week ever." All of the staff was amazing and made my daughter feel very special. Each teacher went above and beyond in every aspect to make this camp amazing. [email protected]

Loved every minute!

My daughter loved every minute of her time at ADTC! She loved all of the girls and how everyone was encouraging and got along. She loved the activities they would do together when they were not dancing. The dancing was fantastic and she learned so much. The instructors were fabulous. The campus is gorgeous and very clean.

My daughter attended ADTC last summer in NC and loved it! She loved the counselors, classes and activities.

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! [email protected]

Two awesome summers!

My daughter has had two wonderful summers with ADTC in North Carolina! [email protected]

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. [email protected]

Impeccable.

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!
