Ballet Technique Class in Charlotte NC

ballet technique class in charlotte north carolina
Ballet is the foundation of all forms of dance and an important part of our advanced students’ training here at Dancers Unite.  Therefore, we are very excited to add a Ballet Technique Class for advanced students to our schedule.

The class is on Thursday evenings from 5:00-6:00 PM.  The focus of the class is ballet technique, so there will be no choreography in the class and there will be no dance performed in the yearly recital (for more information about our classes that do not focus solely on technique and do perform in the recital, please see our Dance Class Page).

This Ballet Technique class is open to students that are not currently registered at Dancers Unite (however, the students should have years of ballet experience).  The cost per class is $15.  Please email the dance studio for more information.
