Performance Groups

Find your Pack and Perform at NC State.

Do something you love, continue your artistic development and be a part of our thriving dance and music community when you enroll in an NC State performing ensemble.

More than 500 student-performers, representing every college on campus, participate in dance companies and vocal and instrumental ensembles each semester. Each performance course can be repeated for course credit, and admission is open by audition.

Feeling nervous about auditioning? Try our symphonic band (MUS 135) to start, which doesn’t require an audition.

Singing in the choirs and being a music minor at NC State has legit given me some of the best memories and friends that I’ve ever had.

Think and Do the Audition

You have everything to gain by going for that audition (and we’re so not scary). Take the leap. Find dates, requirements and contact information on our audition page and come join our Pack.

Being a part of [a dance company]… pushed me beyond my comfort zone in a safe and creative space, all while I connected with likeminded individuals with whom I formed lasting bonds.
