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

Today we throwback to special milestone for any ballerina - receiving their first pair of pointe shoes 🩰

A big congratulations to our level 5 students who received their first pair of pointe shoes back in December!

Pictured here is Lacey, Bailey, Emerson, Caroline, and Jasmine being carefully fitted for that perfect shoe & fit. Lacey and Jasmine received their shoes here in Wilmington at Dance Exchange, while Bailey, Emerson and Caroline were fitted at Relevé Dance in Cary.

Pointe shoes are a special milestone in every ballerina's training. Reaching this milestone requires hard work, strong ballet technique, and strength training for many years 💪🏻

Every ballerina remembers their first pair of pointe shoes. Along with the thrilling excitement of the first class! We are so proud of our Level 5 students who reached those milestones this past semester. We can’t wait to see you grow!

Come watch these beautiful performers shine in our Spring production of Beauty and the Beast on June 4rd and 5th, at the Wilson Center.

Make sure to congratulate them in the comments for their new magical shoes and the hard work it took to earn them!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 #pointeshoes

Start your week with some inspiration from just a few of the trailblazing Black performers, artists, & dancer's who have paved the way in the fine arts 🩰

Their hard work, determination, and perseverance to continue pursuing their passion for the arts despite the many challenges and discrimination is simply awe-inspiring.

To the performers of yesteryear, like Bill "Bojangles" Robinson and Alvin Alley, to the icons still gracing our stages today - thank you! You paved the way for every dancer of color who follows behind you 🤝

This is by no means a complete list of the talented Black ballerinas, performers, & dancers who deserve recognition. Make sure to like this post and share your favorite performer of color in the comments below 👇 #blackhistorymonth #wilmingtonnc

No one does Sweetheart Week like our Wilmington Conservatory family 💖

For years, Sweetheart Week has been a cherished tradition here in the studio. Our students are encouraged to share their love and passion for dance, art, and music with their loved ones by inviting them to join them for class!

We are typically joined by fathers & grandfathers in class all week, and we never fail to have abundant laughter, joy, and more than a few stories by the time this event comes to a close.

That is why we continue this event, year after year, because we see the joy it not only brings to our students, but to their families as well! We cherish the opportunity to foster these impactful moments in our studio and we are already counting down the time to our next Sweetheart week ⏱

When my sweet Lacey isn’t rocking that #farmgirl life, she is usually dancing her heart out. Those two worlds often collide and you may see videos here in the future of her dancing for all she’s got, even while wearing work boots. Our children take classes at the amazing Wilmington Conservatory of Fine Arts and we are so thankful for the wonderful instructors there! Sunday they danced at @wilmingtonriverfest and did a lovely job! #huckleberrygrovefarm #ballerina #dancingforjesus
Please pray for this sweet boy. He has a blockage and is having to have surgery.
