  • Modern: Students in modern work on modern technique and choreography.
  • Musical Theater: Students in musical theater work on choreography and steps similar to what you would see in a Broadway play.
  • Tap: Students in tap work on making rhythms with their tap shoes and learning important tap vocabulary.

Tumbling Classes in South Charlotte

Live in South Charlotte and looking for a tumbling class for your child?  Then try Dancers Unite!  We are conveniently located in the Dilworth neighborhood and offer tumbling classes starting at age two up to teen. 

For our younger students, tumbling is offered as part of a combination dance class.  You can expect students to work on more basic skills for this age range (such as forward rolls).  Then we offer tumbling separately starting with kindergarten age, where students start working on more advanced skills.  For our middle & high school students, we offer beginner & advanced level tumbling classes. 

Our tumbling classes have wonderful student to teacher ratios to ensure each student gets one on one time with the instructor(s) to work on specific skills.  Also, this ensures our tumbling classes are run safely.

Charlotte Dance Competition Team Fundraiser

charlotte dance competition team
With the Competition Company’s first dance competition quickly approaching, our Dance Competition Company is doing fundraisers to help with the costs.  Our Competition Company is currently selling Citipass books, where a percentage of the sale will help pay for entry fees & costume fees!  We would be very appreciative if you could buy one to help support our Competition Team!

If you are not familiar with Citipass books, it is a book that contains great offers from local merchants – all over Charlotte as well as Fort Mill, Harrisburg, Concord, Matthews, Weddington, etc.  The coupons are for stores, restaurants and local performances in the Charlotte area.  The book only costs $25, and with many buy one, get one free offers, it can pay for itself in just two uses!  I know I personally have benefited from having a Citipass Book by trying new restaurants in Myers Park and Dilworth that I have loved!  

So next time you are at the studio, please buy a copy!  For more information on office hours, please see our Dance Studio Contact Page
