ABOUT THE COMPANY
Founder - Tracie M Coleman
The Charlotte Dance Company was established in 2003.
The CDC casts artists from all over world to present interactive dance exhibits and installations. Through various platforms, audiences are given an inside look into their creative process as well as an opportunity to attend rehearsal labs and member-led classes.
From the Founder: To all those submitting or thinking about it; I want this process to be fun, entertaining, and something that you’ll consider year after year. Although we’re a professional group, we're also relaxed and understand that dancing for people you’ve never met can be nerve-racking, therefore, I want you to feel like you’re already a part of the team and we’re laughing, creating, sharing, and connecting on something that we all genuinely love to do. And if you have ANY questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. -Tracie
