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. 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, positive and inclusive space for our students, families and staff. L.A.D., as we are lovingly known, has been a second home for hundreds of students for  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 27th Season begins on Monday, September 9! 2024/2025 Schedule/Tuition will be posted mid-July!

THE LAD DIFFERENCE

A FAMILY STUDIO

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.

THOSE LITTLE EXTRAS

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

DANCE FOR EVERYONE

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.

RECITALS

Our 26th Annual Performances will be held on June 8 and 9 at Stevenson High School's West Auditorium!
