Founded in 1968, Margaret LaPierre opened her studio to instill the art and joy of dance in young children. She believed every student should have a strong ballet foundation, and that philosophy is still upheld today. One of Mrs. Lapierre's first students was Sue Burns (Marroni) who danced at the studio from age 10 through high school. Upon graduation she continued her journey at LapPierre as a dance instructor and in 1999 Sue followed in Mrs. LaPierre's footsteps becoming owner and director of LaPierre. Under Sue’s leadership, the LaPierre School continues Margaret’s vision of providing a wide range of dance styles and opportunities for all ages. LaPierre has grown to become one of the most respected, popular, and comprehensive dance studios in New England.
