Our Story

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!

We offer classes for dancers age 2-18 in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, pointe, and more!


La Danse Academie is proudly owned by Lori Bowen. 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.


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.

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.


“My daughter has been going to LDA for two years now and she absolutely loves it. She looks forward to class all week. I love that it is family owned and that they make you feel like family when you walk through the door each week. Highly recommend!”
