Welcome to the Lincolnshire Academy of Dance celebrating our 26th Season!

We are a family friendly dance academy offering quality dance instruction to children ages 3-18. Our roots stem from Campbell's of Lincolnshire's Dance Studio (1970-1998). LAD Artistic Director Ms. Brenda Didier studied with professional Radio City Ballet dancer Elizabeth Campbell at her studio located down the street from the Lincolnshire Swim Club. We moved to our Vernon Hills location in 2011 after we outgrew our Lincolnshire Village Green location after 13 successful years.

Our priority is providing a safe, welcoming, happy and inclusive space for our students, families and staff. L.A.D., as we are lovingly known, has been a "second home" for our students for the past 25 years. Thank you for sharing your children with us! – Brenda Didier, Artistic Director

"We traveled an hour roundtrip to get to/from the studio for many years. LAD was life-changing for my daughter. She found her passion and joy of dance and thrived in a positive environment." Kathy B.


Our 2023/2024 Season runs September 11, 2023- June 3, 2024. Our 26th Annual Performance weekend will be held on June 8 &9, 2024-Venue and Times TBD.

New to LAD? Please either email or call us about class placements or to schedule an evaluation.

We offer 1 complimentary trial class per student. After the 1st trial class, the fee is $20.



Our staff has become a family. We see our students grow with us and become family. Each year we celebrate our seniors, students, alumni and staff achievements.

We offer a unique scholarship program to give back to the community.


From free costume alterations and open dress rehearsals, those little extras add up.


From Ballet to Jazz, Musical Theatre, Hip hop and Leaps & Turns, we offer over 10 different dance styles.

We have 2 professional percussionists for our modern classes and a professional pianist for most ballet classes.

LAD has always been and will always be inclusive and welcome to all students, families, artists, staff and teachers regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or ability. We aim to unite instead of divide.
