ABOUT THE CHILDREN  & TEENS'  DIVISION

The renowned Child/Teen Program was established in 1988 and has become an integral part of Lee Lund Studio. The Studio's approach has always been to provide strong classes with a coherent curriculum. In keeping with these standards, students of Lee Lund are encouraged to integrate disciplines in order to improve their technique. As we have grown throughout the years, our classes have maintained their structure and students can expect the individual attention that is necessary for their growth. The primary goal of the studio to instill in the students proper dance technique through positive and supportive teaching methods.
