The award winning dancers of LFDA’s Performance Companies have been locally and nationally recognized for their dedication and passion to the art of dance. The companies are designed to give dancers an opportunity to take their training to the next level, gain performance experience, and share their talent with their community. Members perform choreography from highly credited directors and guest artists while gaining invaluable friendships and self-esteem. Auditions for these groups are held annually in May and are open to all students wanting to share their love of dance.
