About Lakeshore Ballet Theatre
Founder & Owner Leisa Naples-Mullins
Lakeshore Ballet Theatre is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Students are eligible to audition for the pre-professional program from age 11 and older. As a college preparatory school and performance company, we give our students a rare opportunity to perform in ballets with our professional adult dancers in dance theatre classics for family audiences throughout Avon, OH. At Lakeshore Ballet Theatre, we teach students that giving back to the community is very important as many young families cannot afford to buy tickets to theatre shows or to dance. Students in the program will perform outreach programs in the Avon and Cleveland community at hospitals, schools, libraries, and more.
Dancers in our pre-professional company must fulfill weekly dance class requirements. Students in this program are also required to mentor our younger dancers during school shows once a year. Lakeshore Ballet Theatre brings in prestigious guest artists from all over the country to teach our students' choreography for the summer show series.
All of our teachers are currently professional dancers and actors focused on bringing out the talent in each student individually. Our teachers are highly qualified and hold Bachelors or Masters of Art degrees in dance and theatre performance and education.
