Alumni Success

Jenny Perry

I am from Sault Sainte Marie, MI. Majoring in Psychology, double Minoring in dance and counseling. I have been dancing since the age of two and it has blessed me with so many great opportunities such as dancing at Disney World, Broadway Dance Center, many conventions and competitions throughout various states and country's, as well as working with some of my role models such as tap dancer, Cartier Williams. Dancing at Lake State is definitely a life changer for me, it's the perfect place because everybody is so close and focused and we are all doing what we love! I wouldn't want to spend my college years dancing anywhere else but here.

Anna Lehman

Anna Lehman from Millersburg, MI. Major: Nursing. Minor: dance. I love to help people, which is why I am going to be a Nurse! I also love to dance and I have been dancing since I was three. Dance is the one thing that has truly shaped who I am. It has given me confidence and poise and a way to release the stress that builds up during life. It is something my sister and I can share, and I have life long friends because of dance.
