Festival of North Carolina Dance

Festival of North Carolina Dance

The 2020 Festival of NC Dance was held February 28 through March 1 on the UNCSA Campus. Information for the 2021 Festival will be added Fall 2020. 

The Festival of NC Dance brings dancers from across the state to Winston-Salem for an intensive three-day weekend at the UNCSA School of Dance. Students will receive master classes from School of Dance faculty and distinguished guests and attend the School’s production of Winter Dance. The weekend culminates with a Gala performance of adjudicated works, presented on Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m. downtown at UNCSA’s Stevens Center.

The cost of attendance is $150 per student. Registration and payments should be made by dance companies and/or studios. No individuals may register for this event. Your company may also submit a video to be adjudicated for participation in the Festival Gala performance, however this is not mandatory for attending the Festival weekend.

Professional development workshops

We will be offering four special workshops for teachers and directors conducted by the UNCSA School of Dance faculty. 

The UNCSA School of Dance looks forward to having you and your students join us for an exciting and fun-filled weekend of dance!
