WE'RE NOT YOUR CORNER DANCE STUDIO
NO DANCE MOMS.
NO TODDLERS AND TIARAS.
NO SPARKLE MOTION.
YOU GET THE IDEA.
Focus on Education
Unlike other studios, we teach a new combination in each class - we are not simply rehearsing the same dance each week. Students receive a more well rounded dance education by learning something new every week.
We have real professionals teaching our classes. From Broadway Productions of CATS and Footloose, tenured NYC Ballet and Cincinnati Ballet members, music industry experience with celebrities such as Mel B and more, our staff has real industry experience, so you'll receive the best education available in the area.
You can drop into any classes that work for your schedule - whether that's once a week, once a month, or even once a year. Students do not have to sign up for a full year and can join at any time without the fear of being behind.
All Classes Open to the Public
Students can drop into any class, at any time. We do not require students to register for a specific class or program, and you can start at any time.

EXHALE DANCE TRIBE
Planet Dance is also the home of Exhale Dance Tribe, a non-profit contemporary performance company based in Cincinnati's vibrant arts community. Founded by our PD Artistic Directors, the dance company gives pre-professional dancers the opportunity to train and perform at a professional level, helping to launch their dance careers. Many Planet Dance students have the opportunity to perform with the tribe as guest dancers, and go on to dance with The Tribe as a core member after graduating from high school.
