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 the mission to create and discover beauty.  This arts oasis offers nearly 70 dance classes for ages 3 through adult, from beginner through advanced levels. Disciplines include ballet, tap, jazz, modern, contemporary, dance for musical theatre, hip hop, and African dance. 

Edge, Verge, and Emerge are FAA Dance Companies that practice year-round, enabling selected FAA students to perform in various locations throughout the region. 

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.” Francie says, “I love to dance because it allows me to be free and to be who I am.” 

Not only does FAA embrace young dancers, but also offers adult classes in the evenings.  This year, “Adult Hip Hop” 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!”  

FAA welcomes you to come in for a tour and try out classes.  Contact the director of education at 440-951-7500 x118.
