You have no idea how many lives have been changed because of your studio!!!
Lake Shore Dance has been selected as the ADCC "Studio of Excellence" by Legacy Dance Championships because our studio represented the values of ADCC. We are honored to receive this recognition which validates our commitment to providing a well-rounded dance education with a solid base in technique and performance.
Over 20 years ago, a dream was born. A dream that dance should be accessible to our community and to every child that wanted to learn. A dream that every child deserves an equal opportunity to discover their own artistry and receive a solid dance education. That dream is Lake Shore Dance.
Modestly opened in a small space in Saukville, Lake Shore Dance quickly built a reputation for excellent dance training, motivated faculty members, and building a family of dancers that all shared the same passion for dance and performance.
In less than a decade, Lake Shore Dance outgrew its first home and moved to a stunning new space in Saukville, fully equipped with three spacious dance studios to house more classes and better serve our community.
In 2007, an opportunity to reach more dancers in the Ozaukee and North Shore areas presented itself. Lake Shore Dance made the bold leap and opened a second location, rebuilding trust and relevance of the dance industry to the Cedarburg community.
Word spread fast about the innovative and exciting programs at Lake Shore Dance. Our dance family welcomed new members every year and the progress of our dancers blew us away.
Now seeking a permanent home for our Northern Ozaukee location, Lake Shore Dance moved from its Saukville location to a beautiful building adjacent to Port Washington High School, in Port Washington.
With increasing interest for a program focused first on training and committed to building a community, Lake Shore Dance boldly opened a third location in West Bend to fill the educational gap in Washington County in 2012.
Three locations strong, our reputation and commitment to excellence paints a brilliant future for our communities and our dance family!
Lake Shore Dance, since its start in 1994, is known to our communities as the place for dance education. Our studio uniquely teaches our students in our progressive curriculum with a focus on building strong, technical dancers with an appreciation for the art of dance.
But, Lake Shore Dance is so much more! Our families describe our Lake Shore Dance experience as 'welcoming, fun, passionate, innovative, and respectful". That's because, at Lake Shore Dance, our focus is on creating a loving atmosphere that embraces individuality and an space that children feel free to explore their artistry. From our smallest dancers to our graduating seniors, Lake Shore Dance is a family that supports each other's journey and training.
Our faculty is passionate about the art of dance and they share their love every day with our students. Each faculty member carefully nurtures the classroom experience to build our students' confidence and support each child's technical and personal development as dancers.
At Lake Shore Dance, our priority is teaching solid dance foundations. Our curriculum is based in ballet technique. Ballet lays the groundwork for all other forms of dance. Ballet teaches discipline, postural control and understanding, and so many other essential tools for dancing.
When your child is little, you want to give him or her opportunities to find their passion. It could be dance! Our children's classes are designed to teach our smallest dancers to be creative thinkers, develop musicality, and have a strong body-mind connection. Through creative activities, songs, and structured exercises, your little learns how to dance correctly, safely, and learns the proper dance terminology. You are guaranteed that if your little one finds dance as her/his passion, she/he is prepared to take her studies to the next level.
Our team of children's class instructors are passionate educators specifically trained to work with each age bracket. These faculty member's are amazing individuals with contagious energy that your little one will look forward to seeing every week. Watch your child's eyes light up with joy as these gifted teachers guide your child through their lessons every week!
Our program uniquely focuses on training first. We believe that the most versatile and dynamic dancers study a full spectrum of dance types. In addition to ballet, Lake Shore Dance offers cutting edge classes in the classical forms: Jazz, Tap, Modern/Lyrical/Contemporary, as well as supplementary classes in acrobatics, pointe training, Hip Hop, and our exclusive AMP program which teaches dancers performance skills and musical theater elements.
In addition to our core programming, Lake Shore Dance brings in a wide variety of Master and Guest teachers to keep the classroom fresh for our dancers. Our summer intensive series has included guest instructors from around the region teaching jazz, hip hop, contemporary, and musical theater. Our students are inspired and motivated by these guests.
