About Us

Leslie's Dance & Tumbling (known as Leslie's Dance Emporium for 36 years) invites you to join our dance and tumbling family.  At LDE you and your child receive the personal attention you deserve. LDE students are given many opportunities to perform.  We offer many levels of participation, including fun recreational classes, as well as competitive dance and tumbling. Our studios feature cheerful dance rooms with suspended wood floors and full length mirrors. There are also family friendly waiting rooms. The main office in Creston is staffed with helpful, knowledgeable staff who is happy to answer your questions. Leslie's Dance and Tumbling strives to create a friendly atmosphere for our students. It is important for the student to become comfortable in order to develop the mind and body to act as one, to develop grace, poise, and confidence.

"We believe in building children's self esteem through hard work to achieve their goals - all while having a good time!"

Who can dance? Everyone. Leslie's Dance and Tumbling, founded in 1979, offers many exciting classes. Our students have many opportunities to excel in all forms of dance. We offer classes for everyone, girls and boys, starting at 2 1/2 years of age, and continuing through our adult program. We also have classes for all skill levels, beginner through pre-professional. We can design a program tailored to your child's needs, whether it is a class once a week for fun and exercise, or a special program for the more serious dancer. Starting in 2016, we also have a new adaptive class called Move It, for children with special needs. We have a recital once a year to give ALL of our students a fun-filled performance opportunity. Leslie's Dance & Tumbling specializes in leading your dancer through the magical world of dance from their preschool years throughout their lifetime. It's so wonderful to watch our dancers grow into our teachers and welcome the children of our former students.

There is a mutual respect and admiration between dancers and students. You can take comfort knowing your child will have age appropriate costumes and choreography for their recital. The curriculum is set by Dance Masters of America certified teachers.
