Dancers in Schools


Since 2004, Carolina Ballet has brought Dancers in Schools all over North Carolina and reached over 60,000 students in grades 3-5. This engaging, one hour program introduces students to the world of professional ballet. Two Company dancers discuss their lives as professional dancers, what their day is like, and the hard work and determination it takes to be a dancer. They demonstrate and lead students in basic ballet positions and movements and perform a short piece. There is a focus on healthy living choices, and the program connects dance with science, math, physical education, and social studies.

Prior to the program, teachers receive educational materials to help connect Dancers in Schools with classroom learning. There are pre-program and post-program activities that enhance the experience and help students make meaningful connections.
