Why Give?

Did you know that the NC State Dance Program relies mainly on student fees and private gifts to fund our operations? Your support allow us to continue to grow and enhance our programming.

Throughout the year, the NC State Dance Program offers far more than in-class instruction. Our efforts extend beyond traditional courses to include a wide variety of Master Classes open the the NC State community, multiple concerts, arts integration projects with on and off campus partners, and participation in conferences and festivals.

When you make a gift to the dance program, you’re investing in the development of dance as an integral part of NC State University’s diverse arts programming. You’re helping us provide high-quality dance experiences to students beyond our course enrollment. And most importantly, you become a valued member of our dance family!

Help Us Raise Money for Dance Student Research and Choreography

The Dance Program and Dance Minor at NC State reach far beyond technique and give students opportunities to make powerful interdisciplinary links through dance. Every year our students bring research proposals for cross-curricular connections that enhance creative and critical thinking.

As we strive to say “yes” to all motivated students seeking robust research and choreographic experiences, we rely on private support to simultaneously fund multiple project costs and travel expenses for presenting at national conferences.

The interest of our students outpaces our anticipated funding sources, and we face a dilemma.

That’s where our new crowdfunding initiative comes in. We are trying to raise $5,000 specifically for five students to fund their projects and showcase their work within and outside of our campus community.
