Lia Malcolm A.R.A.D., A.I.S.T.D
Lia started dancing at the age of 6 yrs. and at the age of 9 yrs. she joined the Junior Associate classes at Great Britain's "Royal Ballet". At the age of 11 yrs. she was accepted to the Royal Ballet's Boarding School where only 1 out of approximately 2,000 students that apply are successful.
The Royal Ballet is arguably the greatest Ballet Company in the world.
For the last 30 years Lia has worked alongside some of the biggest superstars and celebrities in showbiz. Her list of dance partners and choreographers are some of the most famous names in the dance world.
After a rewarding career of dancing the great Classical Ballets, she turned to the more commercial side of dance.
As a young dancer she was spotted by world renowned choreographer Dougie Squires O.B.E. and immediately became his Principal Dancer.
In her mid twenties she was given a guest spot starring in a weekly Primetime T.V. series for the B.B.C. Other television credits include "The Benny Hill Show", solo guest appearances for German (RTL), Spanish, Swedish and Dutch TV as well as features and interviews for Lifetime Television for women and "E" Entertainment Television here in the U.S.A.
...
Lia has also appeared in numerous MTV music videos.
After arriving in America she was offered the position of "Principal Dancer" at the world famous "Folies Bergere" at the Tropicana Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. She also joined the cast of "Spellbound", Lake Tahoe, and "Midnight Fantasy", Luxor Casino Las Vegas.
Lia has taught masterclasses and workshops all over the world and is an Associate of the Royal Academy of Dancing A.R.A.D. which is the largest examining and teacher education for classical Ballet in the world and an Associate of the Imperial Society of the Teachers of Dance, A.I.S.T.D.

Lia was one of the most exciting dance performers I have ever worked with in my 50 years in theatre and television and her technique which combined jazz, classical ballet, and gymnastics with equal ease is very special. I'm sure she will be an inspiring and excellent teacher and her experience as a lead dancer in all mediums will help young performers to understand the demands of the profession. Dougie Squires OBE, Order of the British Empire ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"My name is Stephen Beagley, I am a former principal dancer of The Royal Ballet Companies, and had the pleasure of working with the wonderful Lia Malcolm and what a great experience it was.
...
"I first met Lia Malcolm in 1997 at the Folies Bergere in Las Vegas where we were the principal adagio dancers. Working with Lia was an amazing and fun experience, but also it was one of those rare showbiz experiences, when you know there is something "magic" happening. ia's talent and drive (and extension!) were in a category rarely ever seen in my then 26 years in the business. She has a rare blend of emotion, talent and energy about her that had the audience literally 'gasping' at her dance abilities! Lia and I parted ways shortly after, but we always stayed in touch through these years.
"Then last year, I was asked by Lia to come teach at her studio, "Dance Elite" in Rapid City, SD. I was absolutely stunned to see what she had done with her students! Her teaching of technique is of course, well above and beyond what you would find at any given studio, but above that, she instills a FIRE and a CORE OF BELIEFS in her dancers in class, that I have not seen in any studio, anywhere. PASSION! DRIVE!! ENERGY!! And at the core, a LOVE FOR DANCE!! The students dance and perform at a hugely advanced level, which is passion driven, and all in a highly professional manner. Lia is directly responsible for this, and her commitment to them and to her work at Dance Elite, is a beautiful and rare thing! Anyone in RC, SD who is lucky enough to get to study with her will reap HUGE rewards as dancers. I know!
...
Lia Malcolm has that kind of creativity, drive and passion!! I'm so proud of her as a dance teacher and a friend!
...
Lia brings out the best in each student and showcases each student's strengths and abilities, allowing them to express their individual dance flare with exceptional technical training. I want to personally thank Lia Malcolm for giving Sarah her love for dance back! As a parent, all I wanted was for Sarah to be happy at an activity we were paying for. Who would have thought that in Rapid City, South Dakota we would have this unbelievable opportunity to have our kids study under an Associate of the Royal Academy of Dancing! Lia's dance credentials and dance experiences are remarkable. I feel this is the best classical ballet instruction we can offer our kids. Lia shares her life lessons as a professional dancer with the students and these lessons are priceless!
...
The impression the random mom gave me is that everything was done by one person, Lia Malcolm. This cannot be true, one person can NOT do all that I saw.
However, it is very clear that Lia, and her students, do magic -and LOTS of hard work.
...
Lia Malcolm is probably the most passionate person I have ever had the honor to meet. She pours 110% of herself into every dance and performance opportunity she lines up for the dancers in her care. Under her tutelage, these dancers are able to put on shows that one would expect to see in large, theatrical cities such as New York City, Chicago, or London. I am constantly in awe of her vision. Her choreography is unmatched and her ability to showcase every dancer in the best possible light is so very much appreciated by the families who come to see their daughters and sons perform. Thank you, Lia, for raising the "barre" in the Black Hills.

Ms. Malcolm,
...
I cannot speak highly enough of Lia Malcolm. Three years ago, I 'discovered' Dance Elite and made the decision to have my girls begin their training at the studio. It is truly the best decision I have made in regards to their dance education. Lia is an amazing teacher who has great respect for her students as individuals, and cares passionately about their dancing. Drawing upon her vast training with Britain's Royal Ballet, she excels in taking her students to levels of skill and performance beyond their own expectations.
