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 dancers and choreographers for Broadway Productions including CATS, Footloose, Hamilton and Wicked, NYC Ballet and Cincinnati Ballet members, dancers and choreographers for such as Mel B, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Justin Bieber 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. You do not have to commit to a specific class or program. Buy just a single class, or a class card which is good for any class on our schedule.
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. You can drop into any class, at any time. We teach a new combination in every class, so you'll never be behind.
meet our artistic directors
Meet Missy Lay-Zimmer and Andrew Hubbard, the founders and Artistic Directors of Planet Dance Cincinnati and Exhale Dance Tribe. After performing together in the Broadway production of CATS, the duo relocated to Cincinnati. While Cincinnati had already started to establish a vibrant arts community, they recognized the need for a professional, "NY-style" studio that catered to adults, pre-professional and professional dancers, as well kids and teens. And... Planet Dance Cincinnati was born!
The duo brings tremendous talent and an unmatched passion for dance to their students locally, nationally and globally. We are incredibly lucky to have them here!
EXHALE DANCE TRIBE
‘25 to Watch’ Dance Magazine
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.
