AMC in Transition

Asheville Movement Collective


The last month of 2016 will see AMC's Volunteer Coordinator, Events Coordinator, and Executive Director passing their positions and the work they entail, along to the AMC community.

The bulk of this transition is AMC re-distributing various work tasks to the community and developing a new compensation structure, but most of all, is in need for participation in making AMC dances happen!

Additional information about the work to be covered and the statements from the coordinators stepping down can be found here.

Email to find out more information, express interest in participating or taking on work tasks, and to offer suggestions.

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.
