Founded in 1975, UNCSA Preparatory Dance Program is the Triad’s preeminent dance education program for children age three to adult to train with rigor and joy towards cultivating a love and long-lasting knowledge of the arts and its many future possibilities.

We believe dance training in the Preparatory Dance Program builds life skills of commitment, work ethic, teamwork, and self confidence to become great artists, students, mentors, citizens, and individuals. Success is broad and our mission is to provide a high quality training environment reflective of the diversity of our community that provides a foundation that can be applied in performance, teaching, collegiate study, and beyond.
