The Miami Valley Dance Center is proud to be celebrating its 37th year in Fairborn. Kelly (Neff) Fuller assumed the directorship of the Miami Valley Dance Center in 1991 after studying with Noreen Peterman for over 10 years. She continues her education by attending several professional workshops throughout the year. She is past-treasurer and past board member for the Miami Valley Dance Teacher's Association and is certified to teach by the nationally recognized Dance Master's of America and is also a member of the Ohio Dance Masters, Chapter 16 where she is currently the director of the Petite, Junior and Teen Scholarship Competition. She is a graduate of DMA's Teacher Training School in New York, as well as graduating from the Masters in Dance Direction Program. Mrs. Fuller has choreographed for the Miami Valley Actor's Theater, the Fairborn City Schools, the grand opening of the Mall at Fairfield Commons, area cheerleading groups as well as talent routines for pageant contestants. She is currently an adjudicator for Rainbow and KAR national dance competitions. She was thrilled to be inducted into the Fairborn City Schools Hall of Honor in 2015. Some of our dancers have gone on to further their dance careers by becoming NFL cheerleaders as well as performing professionally throughout the US.
We pride ourselves on being a family friendly studio with certified, professional, adult teachers. Our mission is to teach students of all ages and abilities about the beautiful art form of dance in a friendly, yet disciplined atmosphere with special attention to the student's individual needs. Whether they are studying for fun in our recreational classes or through our accelerated Dance Force Program, we value them equally and give them the time and attention they deserve. Our newly renovated facility features nearly 2,500 square feet of dance space on top of a professional "Spring Step" dance floor with viewing windows to each studio. We offer classes for students age 3 through adult at a variety of levels in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop and Irish. Our instructors are certified to teach dance through Dance Master's of America. All of the assistants are either currently enrolled in the teachers-in-training program or are graduates of the program. This program is designed to teach students through classwork and hands-on experience the qualities and skills necessary to become well-rounded and knowledgeable dance instructors. All of the instructors continue their education by attending 3-5 workshops throughout the year
