La Danse Academie is a family-oriented studio dedicated to the individual development of each dancer. With a warm and welcoming learning environment, La Danse Academie educates well-rounded dancers who excel in the studio, onstage, and beyond!
La Danse Academie is proudly co-owned by Anne Hiller and Lori Bowen. Over the past 50 years, the studio has grown into a home away from home for our students, and thousands of dancers have become members of the LDA family. La Danse Academie is an educational studio, not competitive, and we offer a varied curriculum of dance classes aimed at creating versatile and well-rounded dancers.
Alumni dancers have gone on to become accomplished professional dancers, studio owners, dance educators, doctors, lawyers, school teachers and much more. A dance education provides students with strong life skills such as self-esteem, teamwork, responsibility, time management skills, and dedication to excel in both onstage and off.
In addition to our annual June recital, our dancers perform in our community, participating annually in the Easter Seals Telethon, performing in local parades, and entertaining nursing home residents. We have also toured nationally taking dancers to perform and take classes at Walt Disney World, as well as internationally with performance trips to Russia, Germany, Italy, and the Bahamas.
Our dancers are taught to have respect for themselves, respect for those around them, and a strong appreciation for the art of dance. Dancers are leveled into classes by age, and all classes are developed to be age appropriate regarding music, costumes, and content.
