Ensemble is a student performing company for students passionate about dance training and artistry who want to be a part of a team. Ensemble dancers work with guest choreographers, perform in several events throughout the year, attend professional performances, and engage in community outreach.
A dance company is like a family. Dancers have a shared bond in their passion for technique, artistry, and performance. They support and make a commitment to one another as a team. They share a common goal. The staff at Lakewood Dance Academy strives to create a nurturing space and motivating atmosphere for dancers working as a team and striving for excellence. We believe in your dreams!
