The Lawson Academy Dance program began in the 1960s after the completion of the Montgomery Student Center and its dance studio. The main focus of the then Pre-College dance department was Ballet, and while our program has evolved over the years to include a variety of dance genres, Ballet still remains as one of our offerings.
