We make every choice regarding our program with the intention of helping our young dance artists realize they have the strength and gifts within themselves to do whatever they choose to do, and their time with us will be a nurturing time for them to explore who they are and who they want to become. Dance is our language or medium for this. LDC offers classes in Creative Movement, Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern, Dance Composition, Music Theatre Dance, and Hip Hop for ages 3 through adult.
