Last month, we had the pleasure of attending the UNCSA Winter Festival, & debuted a new Neo-Classical work created by our own Cory Smith! 🏆
We are so proud of our students & their representation of the Wilmington Conservatory! Below is a message from WCFA Founder & Director Cory Smith:
“This past month WCFA Apprentice & Company dancers participated in the University of North Carolina’s School of the Arts Winter Festival, in Winston-Salem! While there, students took classes every day in ballet, pointe, contemporary, jazz, and character, with nearly 50 other companies from across the state.
A limited number of companies were selected to perform in the gala, and WCFA was honored to be selected to premiere “Menuet” at the Stevens Center. This piece will make its local premiere in our upcoming production of Beauty and the Beast, at the Wilson Center this June!
Our students not only showcased their beautiful artistry and work ethic in the classroom and on stage, but also, their kind hearts, smiles, and professionalism everywhere they went. I am so very proud of our amazing dancers and congratulate them for all their accomplishments!”
Let’s give them all a round of applause for their exemplary representation of our studio and community! 👏 #tbt #uncsa

We rejoice and give thanks for the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior. May blessings of love, gratitude, and peace be abundant today for all ✨
"For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this."
- Isaiah 9:6-7

WCFA: Post Cinderella Performance Dancing Queens
✨Congratulations are in order✨
All of our performers were stunningly beautiful and amazing this past weekend! Our production of Cinderella was a huge success. This production would not have been possible if not for the talented performers, faculty, staff, backstage crew, and of course, you!
We are so grateful for everyone who put time into making this show happen. We have overcome a lot together in the last year and we are so thankful for all of you who helped pull the meaningful pieces of this production together, from the costumes and sets, to the audio and graphic team.
🔹We know many of you are anxiously waiting for Cinderella to be available on-demand. We have been in the process since the close of production, rendering and uploading the video to ShowTix. Unfortunately, we grossly underestimated the time it would take to upload these two massive files. We thank you all for your patience and we promise to alert you as soon as these videos are available for you to access🔹
It was a long, trying year working towards bringing Cinderella to life but we made it through. Many of our students started learning these combinations before the start of the pandemic and it brings us such joy to know they finally got to perform it for you on stage. Thank you for your support of the Wilmington Conservatory, Turning Pointe, and of our students.
Check out this fun clip from the end of the show to tide you over until Cinderella is available on-demand!
Can’t make it to Cinderella in-person this weekend? 👸
No need to worry! We will be debuting 4K, high-quality video recordings of both showings of Cinderella, next week for our viewers 📹
These videos will be available on-demand at ShowTix4u.com until June 30th, which means you can watch whenever and wherever you desire after your purchase. Your purchase allows you 48-hour access to your showing of Cinderella.
If you want to have your own copy of our production of Cinderella, we are also offering a purchase option that includes a DVD-recording of the performance, for just $35! 📀
