Choosing a dance studio for your child can be a challenge. Since instructors and staff will interact with your children on a long-term basis, the right studio has a long-lasting impact on the lives of all the young people they work with. When you walk into a dance facility, the atmosphere says a lot about the experience you and we have been educating young students for over 32 years.

Our goal is to cultivate young students into well-rounded individuals, who have not only an appreciation for dance & floor gymnastics, but who reach for high achievement in academics and community service as well. Our instruction is diverse, age-appropriate, and fun in order to make sure each and every one of our students are well versed in various genres of dance. Equally important to dance technique, we strive to instill life skills like treating yourself and others with respect, how to be part of a team, and the importance of community service.

We aim to inspire and shape our students to be better artists and people both inside and outside of the studio. Charlotte Dance Alliance is developing leaders.
