Dear LLDS Families,
For over 70 years, we have always considered the teachers, students and parents of the studio who share and enjoy our love of dance together to be part of a greater family. It is with this in mind that I write to you with the deepest feelings and the utmost sincerity.
We must now inform you that the final curtain has closed, and that both Miss Laxton and I have decided to retire the LLDS name. The studio will not be open in September.
We did not want a sad and tearful recital. We wanted to celebrate the hard work and dedication of our students and to present a joyful presentation by our dancers for their parents, family, and friends. We did indeed have a wonderful celebration of dance yesterday. We were so proud of all of you.
We want to thank you for being a part of the LLDS traditions and dance education. It has been an honour and a privilege to teach your children over the years and we hope we have instilled a love of dance, music and theatre in each and every dancer.
We would like to stress that this should not be the end of your child’s dance education. As you know, we have so many talented dancers full of potential, energy and drive. There are many wonderful dance studios in the Stoney Creek and surrounding area. Please research to find the best fit for your child and your family. We hope that all of our students will continue their dance education.
In closing, thank you for your support, your understanding and love through the years – it has been an incredible journey together. You will remain in our hearts just as we hope your time at LLDS will be a fond memory for you.
The LLDS staff will be in the studio on Monday June 18th from 6:30 – 8:00 for anyone wishing to come in to speak with us.
With all our best wishes,
