If the walls at Studio L Dance Co. could talk, they'd most likely talk about how jealous they are of the staff's dancing adventures. The toe-tapping pros have experience performing at the Super Bowl Half-Time Show, have toured with Shakira, and have danced on Broadway.
Now, assembled under one roof, the instructors draw from the lessons they've learned to lead a new generation of dancers in dance classes and summer camps. Youngsters with dreams of gracefully flitting over the boards learn the ropes in ballet, tap, or jazz sessions, while others who feel the yard hasn't yet been sufficiently stomped can sign up for hip hop classes. Courses for boys only let little fellas dance with likeminded compadres while learning physical self-awareness, flexibility, and creative thinking—attributes each of the dance classes strive to impart. Kids who want to seriously pursue a career in dancing or become the ballerina inside a music box can get a taste for it in the competitive dance team.
