At North Royalton Dance Academy, students from three to 18 years perfect rug-cutting techniques under the trained eyes and expertly whirling appendages of experienced instructors, and weekly adult classes help grownups to stay in shape. More than 10 classes educate students on adroit move-making in multiple levels of modern and traditional dance genres. Ballet builds a solid, traditional foundation on which pupils can construct the rest of their dance education or a house of groove. Hip-hop teaches the vital skills of krumping, popping, locking, and tax-return filing, and Lyrical/Modern/Contemporary places an emphasis on individual expression. Tiny Dance gets the smallest feet moving, and grownups of all levels can test shimmying skill sets in jazz and tap classes for adults, which teach how to responsibly enjoy a fermented grapevine step and how to box-step while balancing a checkbook on one's head. The studio's sprung floors protect dancers' joints as they learn to boogie in time for the annual recital.

Clare Gales has two loves—dance and fitness. The devoted dancer and expert trainer opened Studio 82 in 1986, where she combined her two passions by hosting both fitness and dance classes on the studio's expansive hardwood floors. Today, Clare and her staff of professional dancers and fitness professionals continue to lead students of all ages in more than 100 different classes that range from ballet to cardio kickboxing.

An abundance of internationally renowned dancers and top instructors have passed through the studio's doors over the course of its 26 years, guiding youngsters and adults alike through the footwork and form of styles such as ballet, jazz, and hip-hop. Certified fitness instructors conduct a variety of energetic classes, interspersing a schedule of high-intensity cardio classes with strength-training workouts and rejuvenating yoga and Pilates sessions. The studio's diverse range of classes attracts an equally diverse group of clients that includes aspiring dancers, fitness seekers, and future brides preparing for the wedding dance or bulking up for the ceremonial arm-wrestling match against the groom’s mother.

Dustin Oliver has served as the choir and drama director at Akron North High School and the fine-arts director at Celebration Church, so he knows a thing or two about putting on a performance. Add to that nearly 15 years practicing the guitar, nearly 20 years honing his piano and voice skills, and at least a few minutes humming the theme to M.A.S.H., and it becomes obvious that this artist is a multi-talented whiz. An accomplished musician and composer with a Bachelor’s degree in music from Southeastern University, Dustin is earning his Master’s in theatre from the University of Akron, making him a veritable double threat and a valuable resource for aspiring musicians and actors. When not adding to his own skill set, he leads private and group music lessons in guitar, piano, bass, and voice for students ages 5 and older—as well as private and group acting lessions—following well-established curricula.
