The Company consists of pre-professional dancers from a sixteen parish area of North Louisiana. LDB has become a vessel for dancers to pursue a professional dance career and has also contributed to an increase in the appreciation for the arts in the community. Each year, LDB hosts a summer intensive workshop in conjunction with the City of Monroe, featuring Dance Masters such as Will Thomas, David Webb, Emily Webb, Christian Vincent, Thom Clower, Jason Fowler, DJ Guthrie, Chris Jarosz, and Jock Soto. The workshop is the official audition site for LDB, and a popular summer program for dancers across the South. Courtney Crain was awarded 2018 Emerging Choreographer Monticello award for outstanding female choreographer at 2018 Regional Dance America Ballet Festival.
