Asheville Masonic Temple Parking

Parking is available in the HomeTrust Banking parking lot across from the Temple or along Woodfin, Broadway, Chestnut, and N Market streets. City of Asheville on-street parking is free on Sundays and you do not need to put money in the parking meters. Parking is also available in the lot adjacent to the Temple for $1/hour.

Sunday, May 22 @ NYS3 One-Time Special Location


We will dance at NYS3 on Sunday, May 22.

Both Sunday waves will be held at NYS3 on Sunday, May 22. NYS3 is a smaller venue and entry will be offered on a first-come, first-dance basis. We anticipate that 35-40 dancers will be able to dance in each wave. Because this is a different location than our usual Sunday dance, doors will not be closed during first wave. Childcare will not be offered for second wave (but children are welcome).

NYS3 is located in a renovated, multi-use industrial warehouse. While the floor has been refinished, it is rougher than the floor at the Asheville Masonic Temple. So, you may consider bringing socks or supportive footwear other than street shoes. It can quickly become warm in the room, so be sure to bring a full water bottle!

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.
