Leonard’s Academy of Dance & Centre for the Arts (LAD) is located in the heart of Brandon. LAD is a community based organization focusing on the talents and diversity of students in our surrounding area. Our students are trained by professionals that are still active in the dance education and entertainment community. Our diversified staff includes an ABT certified ballet instructor, a So You Think You Can Dance Finalists, as well as former and current performers in Hong Kong Disney, Disney Land, Busch Gardens and Royal Caribbean Cruises. We focus on community performances as one avenue of getting our students to learn the importance of commitment, discipline, dedication, teamwork, and sacrifices. This gives our students a sense of pride in their backgrounds and the ability to compete and perform on national and international stages.
