Dance Mission

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 in the same building 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 8 teachers, four dance studios (after an addition was completed in 2003), and several office members. 


Lisa and her teaching staff have choreographraphed several award-winning routines which have been taken to regional and national competitions in Ohio and surrounding states.  The studio has produced three National Title winners.  Compeition students have danced in NYC on Broadway and this year they will travel to Florida to dance in the Walt Disney World Electric Parade.  Many students have graduated and gone on to become dance therapists and dance instructors.


Lisa's school of Dance offers classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip-Hop, Modern, and Acrobatics.. There are also programs geared for ages 2.5-5 years old. 


Our mission is to provide a positive, enjoyable environment in which students can learn the art of dance while growing physically, socially, and emotionally.
