Meet the Team

What makes us unique...

We know that you have a lot of choices when choosing the dance studio that is right for your family,

so we wanted to help by telling you what makes LDA standout above the rest! 

Ms. Lori Bowen - Owner/Instructor

Hi! I'm Ms. Lori.

Ms. Meghan Duncan - Instructor

Hi! I'm Ms. Meghan. I have been coming to La Danse Académie since 2008. I am so excited that I can continue to be apart of the studio as teacher and help every dancer in my classes express themselves through movement. Some of my favorite dance styles include Contemporary, Modern and Tap.

Ms. Brittany Jacobs - Instructor/Office Manager

Hi! I'm Ms. Brittany. I have been a dancer at La Danse Académie since I was 11 years old. I began assisting classes when I was in high school and continue to teach dancers ages 5 and under. My favorite styles of dance include Contemporary, Jazz and Hip-Hop. Thanks to teachers who believed in me, dance helped build my confidence and establish friendships along the way. Outside of dance, I am a first grade teacher who studied at Benedictine University and received my bachelors degree in elementary education with a special education endorsement. 

Ms. Ava Zavala - Instructor

Hi! I’m Ms. Ava. I have been apart of LDA since I was 3 years old, I started assisting at 14 and teaching at 17. I love the art of dance and I especially love sharing it with the next generation. I’m looking forward to seeing your dancer flourish in class, on stage, and beyond!
