Carowinds Steele Creek Dance School Performance

steele creek dance school
Today a group of our dance school’s dancers performed at Carowinds, a theme park in both Charlotte, North Carolina and Fort Mill, South Carolina in the Steele Creek neighborhood.  The dancers performed a mix of jazz, hip hop, lyrical and musical theater routines.  We are very proud of how well our dancers danced.  Our dancers were also able to enjoy a fun day at Carowinds after the performance was over!  It was fun to be able to spend time away from the dance studio with our DU family.

As many of you know, you can already go ahead and register for dance classes at DU for the 2012-2013 season.  One of the classes you can go ahead and register for is a Teen Beginner to Intermediate Lyrical/Contemporary/Modern Class.  Students with some dance experience or beginners can sign up for this class.

The class fuses the wonderful dance styles of lyrical, contemporary and modern.  The meanings of lyrics of songs or the mood of the song are interpreted through motion by the dancers in lyrical.  Self-expression and creativity are encouraged in modern.  Strength and flexibility are important elements of contemporary.  This class is a wonderful blend of all three.

Summer Teen Ballet Class in Charlotte

With our annual Dance Recital less than three months away, it is a good time to start thinking about the summer.  It is important for dancers to keep up with their dancing and technique over the summer so that they are not as rusty when the fall comes again.  That is why we are happy to be offering a Ballet Class over the summer so dancers can keep up with their ballet technique. 

The Ballet Course runs through the month of June.  This is a good dance class to take if you wish to be part of the Competition Company next year.  Ballet is the foundation of all forms of dance, so this class is good for students who love ballet but also students who are serious about other forms such as jazz and lyrical because ballet technique will improve your dancing.  Previous dance experience is required for this ballet class.

For more information, please see our Summer Dance Class Page.

Video Clips from Charlotte Dance School

Ever since we opened our dance studio years ago, we have had a lot of people ask what our dance classes are like.  In order to help people get a feel for our dance classes, we decided to start a video gallery of clips from dance classes and performances.  Less than a year ago we put up our first video, which was a montage from our 2 to 5 year old dance classes.  We are very excited that the video has been viewed almost 10,000 times!  We are so glad that our dance studio has created such a buzz.

We are very proud of our dance studio and want everyone to see the wonderful program we have at our dance school.  If you have not seen any of our video clips, we encourage you to take a look for yourself.  We periodically update our videos with new clips.  Below is the latest video we uploaded, which is a clip of some of our Competition Company dancers performing at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Uptown Charlotte.
