Dalhart Lone Star Dance Academy is located in the city of Dalhart, Texas offering dance classes for students of all ages and technique levels. Academy registration begins in August and is a nine month program; however, we have ongoing registration throughout the year up until the first of March. Students that will be in the Academy Unleashed Production (recital) and will need to register by December as that is when we are focused on the spring Academy Unleashed productions for Academy students. Please visit the LSDA Calendar for specific dates and information. Dancers can choose from a variety of dance classes such as ballet, tap, and jazz! LSDA also offers a great Summer Program as well with our classes running June & July. These classes are instructed by a team of Lone Star Ballet qualified instructors that take great pride in working with their students. Dancers enrolled in the Dalhart Academy will have the opportunity to learn choreographed dances and perform them in our Academy Unleashed Production each year. (Lone Star Dance Academy is the official school of Lone Star Ballet)
Dancers have the opportunity to learn choreographed dances and perform them in local community events if needed and requested. Must be nine years old or by special invitation from the Studio Director to audition.
