Carolina Performing Arts is housed in the venerable Memorial Hall, which is worth a visit just to peruse the plaques on the wall commemorating donors and famous graduates from the 1800's and early 1900's; a mini-history lesson. The hall has been remodeled in the last...More

Great dance companies make the rounds of important venues around the world, and that includes Chapel Hill during the Carolina Performing Art series. Joffrey, Ailey, Kirov, you name it they come here!
