WELCOME TO STUDIO L

We can't wait to get started!

At Studio L, we believe that a strong technical foundation in tap, ballet and jazz creates the most versatile and well-rounded dancers. That foundation is important to have before moving on to other styles, and especially beneficial to those who have an interest in theatre! 

 

As we anticipate the start of our fall dance season, we are kicking off our kids' classes with our introductory Spotlight Summer Camp from July 15-19! Keep scrolling for more info and to book your child's spot!

Stay tuned for more information about kids classes and fall registration!

Studio L also offers dance fitness classes for adults. These classes will operate separately on social media under the name "La Femme" (formerly known as No Supervision Dance Studio). For now, La Femme is still using our old website, nosupervisiondance.com!

Camp includes over eight hours of ballet, tap and jazz instruction, a Studio L Dance Co. T-shirt, and a Friday performance for parents to come see their dancer shine in the spotlight as they show what they learned throughout the week! Performance times on Friday are 10:15 for ages 3-6, 12:15 for ages 7-11, and 2:15 for ages 12-18.

Attire: Any type of dancewear or comfortable clothing (leotards with tights, T-shirts with leggings, etc.) Dance shoes are not required but they are welcome! If your dancer does not have dance shoes, send them in socks and tennis shoes. They will receive their new Studio L T-shirt at the end of the week! Book below and please email us with any questions!

In our 3-6 age group, our tiny dancers will play fun games and learn exercises that teach body and spatial awareness, creativity, basic rhythm, and following directions. They will also learn some basic ballet and tap technique and fun choreography! **Dancers must be potty trained. Please make sure your child uses the bathroom before class!**

In our 7-11 age group, we will focus on stretching, beginner ballet, tap and jazz technique, across the floor exercises, fun improv games to inspire creativity, and learning choreography.

In our 12-18 age group, we will focus on stretching, beginner and intermediate ballet, tap and jazz technique, leaps and turns across the floor, and how to learn and create choreography.

Lauren Fontenot is the owner of Studio L Dance Company. She began dancing at age four at Rosie's Dance Center in her hometown of Welsh, LA and has been dancing ever since.

She minored in dance at LSU and has worked with instructors such as Sheryl Murakami, Yanis Marshall, Shirlene Quigley, Ian Eastwood, and Laurie Johnson at numerous conventions and Broadway Dance Center in New York. She has also had the privilege of training with the Radio City Rockettes.

Lauren began teaching dance at age 19 at Jete Dance Company and Rosie's Dance Center. After spending some time dancing in New York, Lauren felt compelled to open an all-adult dance studio that would provide a place for adults to continue dancing past childhood, as well as to introduce adults who have never danced to a fun and effective way to get in shape. Thus, No Supervision Dance Studio was born! Lauren is so proud of the friendships formed and memories made among students and is excited to continue adult classes at Studio L Dance Co.

 

In addition to studio classes, Lauren also choreographs for ACTS Theatre in Lake Charles, where she currently holds two ACTA awards for choreography. Her next choreography project at ACTS is "Chicago" which she will also be dancing in in September, along with several of her adult students! In 2023, as a first-time coach for Mad Hot Ballroom---a major local competition and fundraiser for The Whistle Stop---she coached her celebrity partner to a first place win. She will be coaching another local celebrity in this year's competition!

Lauren is thrilled to teach kids again and introduce dance to the new generation. Dance doesn't only teach rhythm and physical fitness; it teaches discipline, work ethic, social skills, teamwork, body awareness, spatial awareness, and more. Lauren believes that dance helps to raise children into successful adults, and she is grateful to be able to provide dance to all ages.
