When your child is young you are looking for something nice for them to be part of.  No one knows whether there is a hidden talent and passion for dancing within just waiting to be "unlocked".DLDA has been very successful in unlocking this passion and love of dance for so many young students.  The dancers that you will read about below were no different.  Their parents thought they were signing them up for something fun and it turned into a life time of love, passion and eventually a career. 

At Denise Lester Dance Academy we are very proud of our alumni.  Many are dancing on professional stages on Broadway, Vegas, Stratford and Toronto in shows such as Crazy for You, Fosse, How To Succeed In Business, Peep Show, Guys and Dolls, The Producers, and Pippin.  Many are dancing and choreographing for major motion pictures such as Death to Smoochie, Blues Brothers, The Tuxedo, Chicago, Carrie while others perform and choreograph for Disney, Paramount Canada's Wonderland, cruise ships, Toronto raptors and music videos. We have even had alumni on the hit show So You Think You Can Dance.  Many have gone on to become studio owners and teachers at private studios, city recreation programs and in the school board. 

If you are an alumni of ours and are still performing, teaching, choreographing  we would love for you to send us a bio and head shot so we can showcase you on our alumni page.  Email Denise she would be so excited to hear from you.
