How do I register?
You are busy! We make the registration process simple and quick. Via our online student registration form, simply enter in your child's (or children's) information, choose your classes, enter your payment information and you are all set! All information is captured and managed securely for your safety.
Technology not your thing? That's ok - we can help you here too! Email firstname.lastname@example.org and our friendly staff will contact you to help you get started.
How do I choose the right class for my child?
Your child's growth is of upmost importance to us at Lake Shore Dance. To this end, we have meticulously researched and designed our program around children's developmental stages and broken our classes down into 1-2 year age divisions to best serve your child's needs and abilities. You can confidently select your class by the minimum ages outlined on the class listing and know that you are selecting the right class.
Still unsure? Contact our staff Monday through Thursdays, 5:00-8:00 PM at any studio location. They can help guide you to select a class and teacher best suited for your child's personality.
What should my child wear to class?

Where do I get dance supplies?
Lake Shore Dance hosts an in-studio boutique, stocked with tights, leotards, children's shoes, new and used dance shoes, dance bags, and other dance wear items. Can't find the size you are looking for? No problem! We also host an order out dance wear program that is simple, convenient and often you will receive your product quickly (barring company back orders). Stop in today to purchase your child's dance class supplies.
Where are you located?
Lake Shore Dance has three campuses in Southeastern Wisconsin. Each location hosts the same curriculum and program, so whichever location you choose, you are guaranteed to have the same "Committed to Excellence" experience!
Southern Ozaukee Campus: W19 N6721 Commerce Court Cedarburg, WI 53012
Northern Ozaukee Campus: 600 N. Moore Road Port Washington, WI 53074
Washington County Campus: 500 Schoenhaar Drive West Bend, WI 53090
Do I need to stay during my child's class or be in the classroom with my child?
Staying at our facility is completely up to you! Each location has waiting areas and coffee stations for parents that choose to stay. You are welcome to take your child's class time to run some quick errands. Please make a point, however, to be back on site before your child's class ends. We do request that parents of our smallest children (Tots I and Tots II) remain at the studio during their child's class.
All of the classes at Lake Shore Dance are designed to be "by myself classes". It is important to your child's progress and independence that you encourage your child to go into their classroom on their own and work with our compassionate and trained faculty. This allows your child to take direction from our faculty which maximizes their learning. You will be amazed watching your child become a confident and independent learner! You are welcome to observe class in many of our classrooms through our one-way observation glass.
