All three of my children have taken classes at Cleveland City Dance. It is an amazing studio for ballet, modern, tap, jazz, and musical theater instruction. My youngest son takes classes almost every day at the studio, has performed in the Nutcracker twice, and loves the summer camps. He will also be auditioning to be in the company later this Spring. I highly recommend Cleveland City Dance for students of all ages and abilities.
