All School of Dance classes (including private instruction) have been cancelled through Spring Break out of an abundance of caution and concern for the community amidst COVID-19. Questions? Contact us at 518.523.2512 or!


LPSD has a long history of excellence in dance education and we are honored to join in that tradition this year. We believe in offering extraordinary training in dance while creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere regardless of skill level. Our goal is to help those who are interested in dance fully connect with the art form by developing the artist within and preparing students for success both on and off the stage. For any questions you can reach us at or by phone at 212.868.4488 x711. We look forward to the 2019-2020 School Season!
