NEW CAROLINA PARTNERSHIP.
Early college credit is also available to high school students who are enrolled at DancePlace.
"We have had a wonderful response so far," says DancePlace Director Darleen Callaghan, "with inquiries coming from all over the United States and Canada. Dancers can audition at any of our national summer audition sites. We have been contacted by several performing arts high schools interested in the program for their graduating seniors."
North Carolina Dance Theatre is the only professional dance company in the southeastern United States with an affiliated school that offers this kind of certification with a major university. NCDT's artistic director, Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux, was for many years the chairman and artistic director of the Ballet Department at Indiana University after concluding his dancing career with the Paris Opera Ballet and New York City Ballet. Sybil Huskey leads the University of North Carolina Charlotte's dance and theatre program.
