SCHOOL HISTORY

Campbelltown School of Dance opened in June 1978. It was the first “breakaway” school of the Hershey School of Dance when it was on the third floor of the old Hershey Recreation Building. Karen Bohner was the instructor at the time, and wanted a studio without “linoleum over cement’ floors. After looking around at many availabilities, she decided on the 2nd floor of the South Londonderry Municipal Building. Kathy Shenk was the Director of PARPC at the time, and the beginning children’s and adult ballet, and the modern classes (taught by Pat VanKleunen) were subsidized by PARPC. In 1985 Ms Bohner left the area with her new husband, and the school was run by Pat VanKleunen for two years and the teacher decided to retire. This is when Lynne Leis offered to supervise the school, and all classes were under the auspices of PARPC. Classes are offered in various levels of Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Jazz and Modern. We accept students ages 5-adult.

Lynne Leis was Ms Bohner’s student in Hershey, and followed her to Campbelltown. She substiltuted for her on several occasions, and was then given her own class to teach in 1979. Over the years she has helped Hershey Ice Skating with off-ice dance instruction, helped Palmyra High School with choreography for several of their productions, and has continued teaching various levels of ballet and beginning and intermediate tap. She is now teaching children of children!! Our classes are offered for ages 5 through adult, and adults are encouraged to take class with their children. Lynne is a graduate of Penn State, majoring in French. As ballet terminology is French, all terms are explained, giving the students the English translation.
