Dance for all at The Fine Arts Association

The Fine Arts Association (FAA) is an arts education and performance center located in Willoughby, Ohio with all the arts under one roof.  This arts oasis offers nearly seventy dance classes for ages three through adult from beginner through advanced levels.  Disciplines include ballet, tap, jazz, modern, contemporary, dance for musical theatre, hip hop, break dancing, African dance and performance groups.

FAA’s dance program allows students to enter at any level and/or style appropriate to both ability and age.  Dance is introduced to young students through creative movement and combination classes.  Young dancers are offered a variety of classes that provide a foundation of dance terminology and movements. As dancers grow in their study, their skills are refined through performance qualities through stylized choreography. Many FAA dancers pursue higher education in dance and perform professionally.

The Fine Arts Association welcomes all dancers to a warm, safe, fun and nurturing environment.  Jessica says “I would come to Fine Arts every day if I could, and pick dance class over any other fun activity.” She says she loves dance “because it makes my soul happy.”  Elizabeth says she feels that “dance makes me a better person through hard work and determination.”  Francie says, “I love to dance because it allows me to be free and to be who I am.” 

Not only does Fine Arts embrace young dancers, but also offers adult classes in the evenings.  This year, “Tappy Hour” tap dance class was a great success!  Marcia said this class was something she always wanted to do and she added, “it was fun and a new class to look forward to.  The instructor was great!”

A beautiful dance studio has been added to the building.  Fine Arts welcomes you to come in for a tour and try out classes.  Contact the director of education at 440-951-7500 x118.  For complete info on classes visit
