Being part of an NC State student company is a college experience like no other. Choreography and performance are at the core of our two programs. Here, you’ll do more than practice your craft—you’ll create beautiful, compelling art. Our small-company setting means you’ll develop close-knit, collaborative relationships with the faculty, guest artists and other members. You’ll be challenged by high expectations, nurtured by passionate teachers and encouraged by your fellow dancers. You’ll also thrive in an environment where your unique perspective is respected and trusted. Our companies are open by audition, and members receive academic credit for participation. Pick the company that best matches you: State Dance Company or the Panoramic Dance Project.
