Experience & Reputation

Elite Dance Academy opened its doors in 1996. Since then we have established ourselves in the community. Offering classes in different styles for every age, skill and commitment level ensures that each dancer can find what’s right for them. Proper technique is taught in a fun, safe and positive environment. The level of instruction received prepares our students to participate in opportunities outside of Elite as well. Several of our dancers have received roles with the Pennsylvania Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet and San Jose Ballet in their versions of The Nutcracker.

After graduation, many of our dancers have gone on to earn spots on college dance teams such as Ohio State, Toledo, Akron, Ohio University, UNLV, Kent State and Ashland. Others have done industrials and have danced professionally on the Cleveland Barons, Cleveland Cavaliers and Cleveland Gladiators dance teams, performed on cruise lines, in music videos and in some of Las Vegas’ most prestigious shows.

My daughter has been dancing at Elite since she was a toddler. In those early years I did not realize what I know now: Elite is much more than a dance studio. She has gained confidence, poise, and team building skills, which will benefit her well into adulthood.
