In honor of Small Business Saturday, we wanted to show our appreciation for a few of our favorite Charlotte businesses!

We asked a few of our dancers to say “thank you” to the local spots they love to support.

Josh Hall, in addition to being part of Charlotte Ballet, also works at Pilates Body Shaping Studio as an instructor.

Colby Foss loves Pho Real, and Sarah Hayes Harkins says Lang Van is her favorite restaurant. Shout-out to the friendly owner and employees!

Amelia Sturt-Dilley likes thrift shopping, and her favorite spots are Blacklion, Sleepy Poet, and Hidden Treasures.

And a favorite across the board is Queen City Grounds – amazing coffee, delicious food, and right across the street from the Center of Dance!

There are many other small businesses we love in Charlotte, and we feel grateful to be part of this community. Show them some love this holiday season.
