LOVETT DANCE CENTER  offers classical ballet and contemporary dance training for students wishing to pursue a career in dance as well as those wishing to enrich their lives by participating recreationally. Many of our students join our Performance Groups which compete on a regional as well as national level.

We also participate successfully in the prestigious Youth America Grand Prix, the worlds largest Youth International Scholarship competition. Dancers trained at LDC have received scholarships and acceptances to many noteworthy Ballet company schools — Australian Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, School of American Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Princess Grace Academy of Classical Dance (Monaco), Houston Ballet, Ballet West and Washington Ballet to name a few.

Lovett Dance Center’s Artistic Director, Carolyn Lovett, has been named OUTSTANDING TEACHER in 2007, 2013 and 2014, and OUTSTANDING CHOREOGRAPHER in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012 at the Youth America Grand Prix Regional competitions. In 2011 and 2012, Lovett Dance Center was named OUTSTANDING SCHOOL at the Regional YAGP competition.

Our goal is to provide students with a dance program that has the highest level of artistic support, attention to detail, and overall excellence.
