Debbie Stapleton - Owner and Director
Since she was a little girl, Debbie has always had a dream of being in the dance world. That dream came true when she created LGD and opened the doors to the public in 1992. Debbie has seen thousands of students enter the doors of Let's Get Dancing and continue through the years. Most have continued dancing throughout their high school careers and many have gone on to dance in their college careers. There is no better joy than when an alumni walks through the doors of LGD to just say hello or partake in class. Debbie is ecstatic and thankful to be celebrating the studios 25th anniversary with some of the best staff, students and family in the area.
