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 & hip hop 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 24th Annual Performances will be held at Stevenson High School's Performing Arts Center on June 11-12, 2022- Times TBD.
