Preserving and Promoting the Performing Arts since 1994

The NCDPAF has dedicated itself to “Keeping the Arts Alive” through various performances which have included the Nutcracker Ballet, Let It Be, Mind, Body and Soul, Runway to Broadway, the Cinderella Ballet, and Ishtar. Though these programs place many demands on our instructors and volunteers, we believe there is no better investment we can make than sharing the richness of the performing arts with our youth.

These programs help to build character, self esteem, confidence, physical fitness, talent and teamwork.
