Charlotte Pre-Competition Dance Classes

If your child is interested in joining the Dancers Unite Competition Company next year, it is a good idea to enroll your child in dance classes at Dancers Unite this year so your child will be ready.  The following disciplines are the styles your child could compete in next year, if they qualify for the Competition Team:

  • Jazz
  • Tap
  • Lyrical
  • Contemporary
  • Musical Theater
  • Tumbling (otherwise known as Acrobatics)
In addition to signing up for the aforementioned dance classes, a great class for your child would be the Jump/Leaps/Turns Class.  That class could help your child with the skill set needed for competitive dancing.  Another great class to take would be ballet, because although we do not compete in ballet, taking ballet helps dancers’ technique. 

If you would like help in selecting dance classes for your child, please email our dance studio and we would be glad to assist you.  You can also view our Dance Class Page to see the class times for our dance classes.

Dance School Performance on Sandy Porter Road in Charlotte

dance school charlotte
On Saturday, some of our dancers performed at the Charlotte Mommies Event at Olympic High School, which is in southwest Charlotte on Sandy Porter Road.  In keeping with the New York theme of the event, we performed a New York themed production number that included jazz, lyrical and hip hop. 

This marked the first performance for our dance school for the 2011-2012 dance school year.  Our dance school always tries to give our dancers opportunities to perform because we believe it makes children stronger dancers and it also helps with stage fright.  Last year we performed at a retirement home, a fashion show, a pageant and a Winter Holiday Parade.  You can see pictures from these events in our Dance School Photo & Video Page.  Stay tuned to see the other events in Charlotte we will perform at this year! 

If you are interested in signing up your child for dance classes at our dance school, which would give he or she opportunities to perform dance in the Charlotte community, please see our Dance Class Page for more details.

Ballet Classes in Charlotte North Carolina

Dancers Unite has a lot of great ballet classes, from the beginner 2 year old dancer to the advanced teenager dancing en pointe.  We pride ourselves in our wonderful Ballet Program.  We provide classical ballet instruction taught by trained ballet instructors, which you can see for yourself on our Dance Instructor Page.  We limit class size so that each student has individual attention from the teacher, because technique is very important in ballet and if you are one of many students, then it is hard for instructors to give you individual critiques specific to your technique. 

For more information on class times, as well as other dance classes offered at our dance studio, please see our Dance Class Page.
