North Carolina Dance Ambassadors is a unique program that offers supplemental training opportunities to prepare young dancers for the performing arts industry.
Each year we select a talented group of dancers from across the state of North Carolina to make up our company of ambassadors.
These dancers receive access to all of our NCDA events plus the opportunity to win continuing education scholarships, build professional connections, and take their dance experience to the next level.
Follow us on social media @ncdanceambassadors for all the latest announcements.
Being an Ambassador
NC Dance Ambassadors
For dancers ages 11-18 | Audition or Invite required.
Being an ambassador provides the exciting opportunity to work with world-renowned faculty and talented dancers from studios across the state of North Carolina.
Throughout the year, our ambassadors participate in private intensives, photoshoots, choreography workshops, a summer training session, and more. Our program gives dancers the ability to train outside of their local studio without interfering with their current dance commitments. At the beginning of each season, dancers receive a calendar with all NCDA opportunities. Dancers are encouraged to make the most of their ambassador experience by attending as many events as their schedule allows.
In addition to our main events, ambassadors receive a CLI Studios membership, continuing education scholarship opportunities, and ongoing industry professional mentorship.
Being a part of the NCDA program provides dancers with an incredible community of like-minded students and a network of teachers who strive to support each individual every step of the way.
Tuition for 2023-2024 ($850/Annually):
There is a $350.00 deposit to reserve your spot as an ambassador. This payment is made when registering (after acceptance) and applied to your overall tuition cost.
The remainder of the tuition is split into two equal payments of $250.
Tuition fees are paid annually. Once paid in full, there are no other hidden fees for the remainder of the year.
We are in communication with all of our amazing guests artists, so we will fill in the exact event details as soon as everything is booked. As always, we understand that our ambassadors are very busy, so we’ve created a wide range of opportunities for them to select from throughout the season.
