A once reluctant dancer now uses choreography and performance to create community and build empathy.
At Carolina Friends School, we value all alumni, not just graduates, for the meaningful connections they provide across our history of over 50 years.
Our alumni community has built its own set of traditions, and we provide a number of opportunities for alumni to reconnect with each other and the School, both digitally and in-person. In a world that is increasingly divided and in isolation, we believe that it is more important than ever to increase meaningful connections and collaborations.
Dance and Theater
Through the years, dozens of former CFS students, stretching from the 1970s to the 2010s, have returned over winter break to offer alumni dance and/or theatre projects for our community.
Traditionally, each December a group of alumni come together to challenge current students to basketball games, volleyball matches, and ultimate frisbee competitions.
FriendsFest is an opportunity for the larger community to celebrate the amazing musical talents of our alumni and School community with a day of family fun and entertainment.
Throughout each year, smaller opportunities allow alumni to gather, in cities across the country as well as here locally.
