Charlotte Dance Studio Among Best in Nation

charlotte dance studio best in nation
Yesterday, I mentioned that Dancers Unite was featured in the Catholic News Herald.  Well, we are also mentioned in the latest Dilworth Quarterly!  There’s an article about our school’s dancers!  Malena and Allie, two Dilworth residents who are members of our Competition Company, danced in the 2012 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City along with other dancers from Dancers Unite and other dancers picked as being the best in the nation.  We are glad their amazing accomplishment was recognized!

Having dancers dance in the country’s most famous Thanksgiving Day Parade watched by millions on TV is just one of the amazing accomplishments by our dancers since Dancers Unite was established, both regionally, nationally and internationally.  For more information on other amazing feats, see our Dance Studio Accomplishment Page.

South Charlotte Competitive Dance Academy in News

Our dance studio got a mention in the latest edition of the Catholic News Herald!  There was an article about our dance studio, about how three of our students (McKenna, Katherine and Emma), who are also Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools students, are the current 2013 Youth National Jazz Champions.  The article also mentions how one of our current students, Malena, who also attends Charlotte Catholic High School, is a current 2013 Senior National Jazz Champion.  Malena, McKenna, Katherine and Emma are all part of Dancers Unite’s Competition Company.

As an alumnus of Charlotte Catholic High School, Holy Trinity Middle School, and All Saints Catholic School, and a former middle and high school teacher at Cardinal Newman School in Columbia, I am very proud to continue to teach and instruct Catholic school students.

This is not the first time our dance studio has gotten in the news.  To see our studio referenced in other news publications, see our Dance Studio News Page.

Dancing School in Uptown Charlotte Parade

dancing school uptown charlotte nc parade
Once again this year, Dancers Unite was part of Charlotte’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade!  Some of our older Competition Company Dancers danced while some of our younger students marched in the parade as well.  We are dedicated to making the whole studio, both competitive and non-competitive students, younger and older students, part of the fun!

The 17th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade turned out to be one of the best yet!  The parade started at Tryon and 9th Street in Uptown Charlotte.  It then headed south down Tryon Street down to 3rd Street, where it turned left ending at Caldwell Street.  With the weather in Charlotte great, and the amazing festivities involved, this year’s parade was seen by thousands of people.  We hope you were one of them - and you saw our dancers from our dancing school!
