The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College is thrilled to announce the return of the MOVE! Dance Series! This exciting contemporary dance series provides a unique experience for performance goers and connects community groups, organizations, and students from across the region to the arts through masterclasses and numerous residency activities. Each performance features our exclusive, limited, on-stage seating—practically putting you into the dance. It’s dance like you’ve never seen it before!
