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. Read more about volunteering at AMC.

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.

— Marilyn Gaunt, Volunteer Coordinator (2016)
