Dance Fever Charlotte prides itself on offering the best ballet classes in Charlotte, that are second to none. We offer a wide range of ballet classes for all ages ranging from elementary and middle school ballet classes to highschool ballet classes. In our ballet classes, we teach traditional Checchetti Ballet Technique which teaches students to think of the movement of the foot, leg, arm, and head, not as something apart, but in its relation to the whole body, to develop a feeling of graceful lines. The Checchetti ballet method is classic in its focus on line without extravagance of movement. Our ballet classes at Dance Fever Charlotte also seek to develop the essential strength and characteristics of dance through stretching and training.
This is a dance class for kindergarten through second grade students that meets once a week for ninety minutes. This dance class for kindergarten through second grade is different than many of our competitors because it is a full ninety minute class whereas most studios offer 60 minutes for kindergarten dance. Our philosophy is that kindergarten through second grade students need a broad introduction to the fundamentals of dance and dance technique including ballet, tap, and hip-hop. The result is that kids in our kindergarten through second grade dance classes get a broad introduction to dance technique which better prepares them to choose their preferred dance classes when they get older. All dancers participate in our year-end recital performance.
(No partner required) The "Shag" is a partner dance native to the Carolinas. Shag today is often compared to west coast swing; however, it has some very important differences. Unlike west coast swing, shag showcases male lead steps and footwork. It consists of intricate steps (i.e. fancy footwork) and is very smooth and controlled (no lifts like lindy hop). While you will see people shag to all sorts of music, the "real" shag music is classic rhythm & blues by groups like the Drifters, 5 Royales, Dominoes, Midnighters, etc. Many of these groups were actually from North & South Carolina and the artists still live & perform here today.
The focus in this class is on lines, formations, cheerleading jumps, and form. A sharp and precise form of cheerleading-type motion with influences of hip-hop and jazz techniques, commonly used by professional cheerleaders in the NBA and NFL.
Dance Fever Charlotte's award winning competition dance team is a fun and challenging way for kids to take their dancing to the next level. While we remain a "recreational" dance studio (i.e. our students are not required to dance five days a week), our competition team works hard and provides a way for students to excel individually through solos as well as on a dance team. Each year our competition teams will compete routines in various disciplines including lyrical, modern, hip-hop, tap, and more.

This pre-dance class for kids is different than many of our competitors because it is a full hour class whereas most studios offer 30 or 45 minutes for pre school dance.
