What We're up to

Our dancers are always participating in events  around the community and outside of the Denise Lester Dance Academy studio, here is a collection of what we're up to!


You can find us every year performing at Pickering Artfest in May, at senior homes within the community and at many other community events!

Performing for Relay for life was an emotional experience. 
The dancers felt like they made a small difference to a very important event. 
Thank you Madison for arranging it for us.
