Charlotte Ballet is offering free dance classes for the community. There are classes for a variety of ages and skill levels.
The free classes are sponsored by Culture Blocks — a community partnership funded by Mecklenburg County.
These are drop-in classes. Except for the virtual classes, you don’t need to register in advance. You don’t need to commit to a particular number of classes. Just come when you can!
For more information or to register for any online classes, contact Emma Manion, Community Engagement Supervisor, at email@example.com, or 704-414-2792.
