UNCSA at Home

UNCSA stages might be dark, but our students and faculty are still bringing light to our community through their art as they continue their training at home.   

Although our performance season was cut short, we’re bringing you online performances and video features until we can be back together in person. Now, more than ever, the world needs artists, and ours are the future. 

Watch the premiere of "Polovtsian Dances" below.
