Lake Shore Dance
Lake Shore Dance opened in 1993 and offers high-quality dance education taught to a wide age range of students. The studio offers a unique, progressive curriculum taught by highly trained dance professionals with industry experience spanning nearly two decades. Currently, the studio offers over 55 classes each week in the regular curriculum taught by a staff of 25. In addition, they are able to provide their students with many performance options through performance competition teams and pre-professional ensembles. Lake Shore Dance has the ability to bring in master teachers with national and international performance and choreographic experience. Lake Shore Dance is unique in that it creates a family atmosphere of a small studio with the opportunities and professionalism of a large studio.
Since its inception, Lake Shore Dance has been continually growing. It started with only one studio and now has three studio locations in Cedarburg, Port Washington, and West Bend, WI. In September 2012, the owners, Gwendolyn Agee, Daniel Agee, and Amy Aichele, were interested in relocating one of their locations. They believed that by relocating their Saukville location to Port Washington would allow them to be more accessible to the northern Ozaukee County market. With the help of an SBA 504 loan provided by WBD and financing from Port Washington State Bank, the owners were able to relocate to a new facility and make renovations. They were able to retain their current staff positions, added two new teaching positions and three assistant director full time positions, and new teaching opportunities.
