Building a Well-Rounded Community,

MLA has built a reputation for excellence in performing arts in our community. For the past 40 years MLA has served thousands of local youth on their journey through the arts and beyond. We are one of 3 studios in the state, and 1 of under 300 studios in the world, who have been awarded More Than Just Great Dancing affiliation. Safety and wellness is our #1 priority!

Our classes are taught in a positive environment, where fun and learning happen simultaneously!
