Our Friday dance is held at NSY3 on Riverside Drive. You can follow Riverside Drive north from downtown (Broadway turns into Riverside Drive north of UNCA at the intersection for 240) or follow Elk Mountain Road to Riverside Drive in North Asheville (Elk Mountain Road ends at Riverside Drive). The studio is in the middle of the buildings lining Riverside Drive. Coming from downtown going north, the studio will be on your left before the Elk Mountain Road intersection.


A few spaces are available in front of the studio and in the gravel lot across from the studio. Additional parking is available in the large lot behind the studio (park near Loft I). Look for our signs!


Asheville Movement Collective was founded on a tradition of volunteerism. If you've been to any of our events, you've encountered a volunteer. From the very beginning, dancers have aligned their passions with service to create space for what has become our burgeoning community.

Volunteer Sign-Up

AMC's aim is to host dance waves for personal and community transformation. Transformation doesn't only result from dance—it can also be found in how we relate to community.
