Uptown Charlotte Dance School Performance

uptown charlotte dance school performance
Yesterday my dance studio, Dancers Unite, had dancers perform in a Bollywood musical tribute charity event.  This event took place at Dale Halton Theater in Uptown Charlotte, on Elizabeth Avenue.  The proceeds from the event will benefit CRY - Child Rights and You, a charity organization that works to change lives of underprivileged children in India.  We were very proud of how well our dancers performed and that they participated in a worthwhile charity. 

Part of our mission at Dancers Unite is to give our dancers performance opportunities to help them grow not only as dancers but as people.  For more information on the mission of our dance studio, please see our Dance School’s Mission Page.

Floor Gymnastics Charlotte NC

I have been enjoying watching artistic gymnastics in the Olympics.  My favorite event in gymnastics has always been the floor exercise.  I am very happy that my dance studio offers floor gymnastics classes at our dance studio where students can learn exciting tumbling moves.  We offer floor gymnastics in our toddler combination dance classes and we have separate floor gymnastics classes (or tumbling classes) for both advanced and beginner kids and teens.  With gymnastics being watched all over the world this summer, now is the perfect time for your child to take up floor gymnastics! 

For more information on class times, please see our Dance and Gymnastics Class Schedule.
