• Celebrating 70 years of dance education!

    • We teach children and adults from every walk of life, and every stage of experience at our state-of-the-art dance studios in Stoney Creek. Some of our students will embrace dance recreationally, while others may choose to dance competitively. What is most important, however, is that each and every student will have an opportunity to dance their own dream. And each dancer's happiness, confidence and contentment with life will grow beyond your expectations.
      Come join the LLDS family!

    • LLDS is a great place for a child to learn to dance. LLDS teachers and instructors communicate the joy and the love of dance to their students bringing fun in the whole experience.


    • As a mother, I always appreciated the carefulness and consideration that is given to the music and costume choices ,to maintain a wholesome and positive quality to their students dance performances. We would definitely recommend LLDS to any and everybody.

    • As a little girl I danced at LLDS and loved every new step I was taught. There was never another option when I had my little girl where she would learn to dance. LLDS is part of our family, and the individual attention each dancer is given shapes their mind and body. Thank you LLDS for many years of happy dancing!


    • Our two daughters have enjoyed over 10 years of exceptional dance instruction at LLDS. LLDS provides the perfect atmosphere for an engaging dance experience in addition to an environment that encourages success outside of the dance studio in the areas of education and social development.


    • I am amazed at the organization at LLDS. The care at the front desk through to the classroom is exceptional.

    • When my three year old asked to start dancing I had doubts if she was ready. At Lois Laxton Dance Studio she had a great dance experience. She is getting exercise, learning technique, rhythm, discipline and having fun doing it.


    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,

    Miss Hutchinson
