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, alumni, student and staff achievements.

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

THOSE LITTLE EXTRAS

From free costume alterations, open dress rehearsals and free digital photographs of recitals, 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 and teachers regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or ability. We aim to unite, instead of divide
