Lake Shore Dance

Your Local Dance Studio for Children - Serving Ozaukee, Washington, and Surrounding Counties 

25th Anniversary Presentation

Lake Shore Dance presented its first full ballet production of The Nutcracker  in 1997 and has consistently presented this local tradition annually every year since then.   In that time, the show has grown tremendously, however the essence of our purpose has never swayed. 

Lake Shore Dance Performance Company was established with the goal of creating a pre-professional performance experience in classical concert dance for children beginning at age 5 though graduation - and sometimes beyond!  Additionally, the Company strives to bring concert dance to our communities in an accessible and affordable format, while creating family traditions that are passed on through generations. 

Continuing in our tradition of reaching out to our communities with dance, we are presenting again 3 daytime shows for community groups and school children.  The Field Trip experience is a one-of-a-kind event that interweaves children's education with live dance performance for a memorable and exhilarating Field Trip that participants will talk about for generations.   To reserve seats for the Field Trip Experiences on November 30, December 1, and December 2, click here.  

The Nutcracker Ballet production now hosts guest artists, a delightful narrated format, 3 full set designs, over 150 dancers, and thousands of costume pieces and accessories to truly solidify the pre-professional performance experience.   The show is entertaining for audience members of all ages  and we invite you to start this tradition with your family this season.  

We are grateful to our amazing community homes for supporting the young artists at Lake Shore Dance as they boldly carry on this tradition.
