Our passion for dance
Education does not end at the classroom
Studio 82 is currently home to more than 400 recreational and pre-professional dancers. Since its inception, Studio 82 has provided accomplished professional dancers to train and teach these students. Past faculty members have included Ineke Anderson, Matt Gasper, Nancy Greyeyes, and Mark Otloski of the Cleveland San Jose Ballet; international dancers Artour Bajanov, Pamela Langevin, and James Robey; Ohio Ballet member, Amy Miller; and many of Akron University’s top dance Faculty members and graduates.
Studio 82 believes that dance education does not end at the local classroom. With that in mind, we continue to bring top name choreographers and teachers to our facility, as well as taking our students to New York and LA to experience classes in some of the foremost recognized studios in the country. Studio 82 dancers also attend nationally recognized competitions and conventions.
Studio 82 dance graduates are currently working in New York and LA, for National Touring Companies, teaching at studios in New York and throughout the country, choreographing and performing for NBA dance teams, studying at some of the country’s top collegiate dance programs and performing with collegiate dance teams.
