Welcome to the Department of Dance

In the Department of Dance at UNC Charlotte, students find rigorous dance training and academic preparation and the flexibility and support needed to pursue individual interests and career paths. UNC Charlotte faculty are diverse in their perspectives and trainings and innovative leaders in performance, choreography, dance scholarship, and teacher training. Our professional advisors help students navigate double majors and minors. Dance study is enhanced by state of the art facilities; the interdisciplinary nature of our College of the Arts + Architecture; study abroad opportunities; and the activities of a vibrant campus and the bustling, arts-minded city of Charlotte. Follow us on Facebook!

UNC Charlotte's Department of Dance does not require an audition for acceptance. The Department will be offering an Fall Fest , an afternoon of free classes for prospective high school students , Friday, September 23, 2022, to provide students opportunities to take classes, meet faculty members and current students, and find out more about scholarships, financial aid, and opportunities within the department. Faculty and staff welcome the opportunity to get to know prospective students and their families. The Department will have an Open House in early 2023.
