"LEGACY IS NOT WHAT'S LEFT TOMORROW WHEN YOU'RE GONE, IT iS WHAT YOU GIVE, CREATE, IMPACt AND CONTRIBUTE TODAY WHILE YOU'RE HERE THAT THEN HAPPENS TO LIVE ON"
Over the last 45 years the Lorraine Spada School of Dance and Debi's Dance Studio have been the longest-running sources of quality dance education in Wilmington, MA. With a combined 90 years of history in the local area, these studios have helped create a safe space for students to grow, learn, and create life-long friendships with a shared love for dance and movement.
As of summer 2020 we announced the fusion of these two historical studios leading to the official re-branded name of Legacy Studios School of Dance. Our new name is a tribute to our roots and the incredible legacy these schools have built over the last decade.
Our new united faculty is thrilled for the new opportunities that lie ahead for our students. With this exciting change comes opportunities for our students to learn from additional faculty, participate in new performance events, and expand their beloved dance families.
