Charlotte Dancers Win Senior Miss Dance & Tween Miss Dance Titles

charlotte dancers win miss dance titles
Yesterday I wrote about our dance studio’s competition company’s overall wins at the dance competition we attended last weekend.  In addition to the overall wins, our dance studio took home two titles!  Allie won Senior Miss Power of Dance and Kiara won Tween Miss Power of Dance!

Title winners get chosen among the dancers of their age at the dance competition.  Students competing for titles were to perform a solo as well as write an essay based on what the studio’s charity means to them (our studio voted on the Make-A-Wish Foundation).  Title winners were chosen based on the scores for the solo, the dancer’s passion for dance and artistry and the essay.  Allie & Kiara were given a tiara to commemorate their title.  Congratulations girls!

Dance Instruction for 2 Year Olds Charlotte

charlotte dance instruction 2 year olds
Dancers Unite is one of a select number of dance studios in Charlotte that offer dance instruction for 2 year olds.  2 year olds can be part of our combination dance class that includes tap, ballet, creative movement and tumbling.  We find that many dancers start dance at age 2 and that benefits them later in their training; in fact, a number of our dancers in our Competition Company started dance at age 2, and we have enjoyed training dancers from the beginning so that we could make sure they knew key fundamental dance steps at each age.

For more information about our dance classes for 2 year olds, please see our Dance Class Page.
