The Carolina Snowbelles


The Carolina Snowbelles, a program of The Project Dance Foundation, is a precision dance company formed in 2015 in Blowing Rock, NC. Precision dance incorporates tap and jazz styles while teaching skills of teamwork, self-esteem, mentorship and community involvement. Our mission is to equip and encourage dancers age 10 and up in this unique style of dance through training and performing opportunities.

The Carolina Snowbelles are a 100% scholarship program and participation is obtained through an audition process and based solely on merit. The troupe trains 3 hours weekly and appears in local parades, community and theatre performances.

The company is directed by former NYC Rockette and Assistant Choreographer of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, Cheryl Cutlip. Cheryl began her Rockette career in 1993 and retired from the line in 2008. Since moving to Blowing Rock from Manhattan, Cheryl has been able to link arms with patrons like Karyn Kennedy-Herterich, local community foundations, Appalachian State University and area families who together have built a 28 member dance company.
