10 Great Reasons to Choose Dancers Unite
1. Internationally Recognized – Dancers Unite is an internationally recognized dance studio, with dancers chosen:
- To dance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City in 2012 & 2013

2. Locally Recognized – Dancers Unite is also being recognized on a local level with the dance studio being chosen:
- To teach dance at the after school programs of Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools (St. Patrick’s, St. Ann’s, St. Gabriel’s, St. Mark’s & St. Matthew’s)
- To teach dance at summer camps at Charlotte Latin School
- To dance at popular local venues, such as Carowinds
- To appear in a segment on WCNC, highlighting our accomplishments
- To appear in numerous other local Charlotte area news publications
3. Competition Company - We have the only Competition Dance Company in the Dilworth/Myers Park/Eastover/Quail Hollow/South Park area that competes on the regional and national level. It is a serious dance program for students looking to have the complete package of great technique and performance skills.
4. Pom Squad – In addition to having a Competition Dance Company, we also have a Pom Squad available to students ages five and older of all levels where students perform a pom routine in Cheerleading & Dance Competitions, also the only one of its kind in the Myers Park/Dilworth/SouthPark/Eastover/Elizabeth area.
5. Pre-school Program - We believe our pre-school dance program is superior because we:
- Have longer classes than toddler classes in the area
- Start at age 2
- Use curriculum specifically designed by Dancers Unite to balance fun & serious learning
- Teach fundamental ballet & tap steps as opposed to just movement activities
6. Location – Our dance studio is centrally located in the Dilworth neighborhood, a wonderful safe neighborhood in Charlotte just south of Uptown Charlotte, easily accessible to many great Charlotte neighborhoods. We are also within walking distance of LYNX Light Rail.
7. Personal Attention - Our dance studio limits the size of our dance classes to make sure each student receives individual attention. We limit class size to 15 and for our preschool dance classes we have at least a 5 to 1 student/teacher ratio.
8. Family Owned & Operated - Dancers Unite is owned by Julie & Elizabeth Emery with their mother Jo Emery. They have lived in the Charlotte area for more than twenty years (Julie & Elizabeth are honor graduates of Charlotte Catholic High School, where Julie was salutatorian in 2000). All three strive to give Dancers Unite a family atmosphere.
9. Choices - Dancers Unite offers multiple dance classes from age 2 to adult dance classes in:
Ballet * Pointe * Hip Hop * Contemporary * Jazz * Tap * Lyrical *
Acro * Tumbling * Latin Dance * Cheerdance * Creative Movement * Bellydance
10. Positive Atmosphere – Dancers Unite strives to instill proper dance instruction in a positive environment. We strive to instruct in a positive atmosphere rather than screaming at or belittling students. We work hard to live up to our name, “Dancers Unite”, by giving the studio a family feel where students work together rather than be competitive with one another.
