Celebrating the Artistry & Technique of Dance
About Cleveland City Dance
Founded in 1965 by Alexis Martin of England, Cleveland City Dance has offered dynamic dance instruction and nurtured generations of dancers for over 50 years.
In 2004, Courtney Laves-Mearini took over CCD and moved our dance school to its current location on 13108 Shaker Square in Cleveland, OH. With a staff of 20 professionally trained dance instructors, we continue to carry on CCD’s legacy as an award-winning dance school offering classes and education for students of all ages.
We look forward to dancing with you!

Our Director Engages in The Sound of Ideas Interview on Shaker Square’s History and Future
Courtney Laves-Mearini, the director of Cleveland City Dance, recently participated in an enlightening interview on “The Sound of Ideas” show. During the interview, we had the opportunity to share our insights and vision for the future of Shaker Square, emphasizing its significance as a cultural hub. We are excited to be involved in the revitalization efforts led by the new owners and to contribute to a vibrant arts and entertainment scene at Shaker Square through Cleveland City Dance’s programs and performances.
Our professional teachers combine a wealth of professional, decades-long experience to nurture the passion and talent of our students.
We understand the dedication, talent, and hard work of self-expression through modern and classic dance instruction. We have found that confidence and self-awareness are integral rewards of artistry and technique, and we look forward to sharing these with our current and future students!
