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.

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 master classes, photoshoots, choreography workshops, a summer intensive, 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.
This year, in addition to our main events, ambassadors will 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 Fees: $850/annually
Once accepted, there is a non-refundable $50 deposit to reserve your spot as an ambassador.
The remainder of the tuition is split into two payments, due before our opening event (October 2021).
Tuition is paid annually; there are no other hidden fees.
