Dilworth Elementary School

Next week marks the first day of school for students attending Dilworth Elementary School. As many of you may know, while last year Dilworth Elementary was a magnet school, this year it will become a neighborhood school for students in and around the Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte.

We are excited that the location of our studio is two blocks down the road from Dilworth Elementary so that we are convenient to students attending the school. We hope the Dilworth Dragons have a great 2010-2011 school year!

Combination Dance Classes in Charlotte

I really enjoyed watching the Visa National Championship last night. Artistic gymnastics is something I have been interested in since I was a child. It is interesting to read about the gymnasts and see how young a lot of them were when they got started. Little did their parents know what great gymnasts they would grow up to be!

combo dance classes charlotteThis is why I think combination classes for the little ones can be so great. At this stage you don’t know what your child will have a talent or passion for so it’s great to expose them to many different things. For example, when I was three years old I begged my mother for ballet lessons but as it turned out tap was my passion.

Students enrolled in the combination dance class at Dancers Unite for 2-3 year olds and 4-5 year olds will take tumbling, ballet, tap and creative movement. The class for 2-3 year olds is 45 minutes and the class for 4-5 year olds is 60 minutes. For more information on class times, please check out our Dance Class page.

Competition Dance in Charlotte

lyrical competition charlotteLabor Day is approaching, which is exciting because after Labor Day our fall classes begin! This includes practices for our Competition Company, and we are very excited about this year.

While some dancers have already been selected for our Competition Company, it is not too late to still audition to be part of the company. At this point you would need to schedule a private audition or a semi-private audition if you would like to audition with a friend or friends (this would be at a lesser rate than a private audition). You will need to contact the studio at 704-846-2985 or e-mail us at

Dancers Unite competes in tap, jazz, lyrical and hip hop. For more information on our company, please see our Dance Competition Page.
