Lisa's School of Dance opened in 1982 when Lisa Testa purchased the studio at the age of 17. She ran the studio while attending college at Kent State University as a Dance and Recreational Education major.
The Studio orginated just down the road from where we operate from today. It began with only one teacher, (Lisa) one dance studio, and a very small office. Today, the studio has grown to 12+ teachers, four dance studios, and an extensive office staff.
Lisa and her teaching staff have choreographed several award-winning routines which have been taken to regional and national competitions in Ohio and surrounding states and several of our teachers are certified Acrobatic Arts instructors. The studio has produced three National Title winners. Competition students have traveled to dance on Broadway in NYC and Florida to dance in the Walt Disney World Parade. Many of our students have graduated and gone on to pursue careers in the dance field. Our instructors keep up to date with current trends in dance and safety to keep your dancer dancing for years to come.
Lisa's school of Dance offers classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip-Hop, Modern, Pointe & Pre-Pointe, Production and Acrobatic Arts. Our programs are targeted to dancers ages 3 and up.
Our mission is to provide a positive, enjoyable environment in which students can learn the art of dance while growing physically, socially, and emotionally.
