Lisa's Dance Studio (Marblehead, MA)

Lisa LaMonica Moretti - Owner/Artistic Director  
I love to share my wisdom and passion of dance with my students. I strive to create excitement and offer children a challenge with innovative choreography and performances throughout the year. The child who is fortunate enough to study dance will find his or her entire life enriched by the experience. Lisa's Dance Studio is staffed exclusively with professional master dance teachers. We have a special commitment to provide an environment of professional dance training for all students from beginner to advanced levels. Although our expectations are high, to do something well, we understand that it is important for students to enjoy what they're doing!!!
