Carolina Dance Foundation is the home of 4 non-profit performing companies, Carolina Civic Ballet, Carolina Groove, Carolina Groove Elite, and Carolina Rhythm.  These pre-professional dance level companies are dedicated to providing talented young dancers with a continuing dance education and performance opportunities throughout North Carolina’s Triangle area.  Our goals include enhancing dancers technical training, increasing self-confidence, and inspiring each individual dancer to reach his/her full potential.  Company members are immersed in the dance community at both the regional and the national level which, along with the numerous performance opportunities, helps those who are interested prepare for a professional dance career.  We also strive to promote and expand artistic awareness within our community by offerring multiple dance performances at local cultural events, festivals, and charity functions.

Company members are selected through a professional audition process each spring.  Dancers must display exceptional technique and performance style/quality for their age group in order to be accepted.  Annual performances include a holiday show and the highly acclaimed Spring Extravaganza. Company members also have the opportunity to attend national dance conferences/conventions as well as weekend workshops featuring master classes from internationally acclaimed choreographers.

Dancers interested in an increased level of jazz training through additional enrichment classes and travel may participate in Carolina Groove Elite (if selected). CGE is an additional commitment to participation in Carolina Groove. CGE provides additional performance and training in jazz, contemporary, and hip hop through participation in out of town dance workshops/competitions such as NYCDA, Revel, Hollywood Vibe and Radix. CGE dancers are required to attend 3 conventions/competitions.

We invite all of our CDC dancers along with their families and friends to support our talented company members!  Come experience the best of the Carolinas – Carolina Civic Ballet, Carolina Groove, Carolina Groove Elite, and Carolina Rhythm!
