RED School of Modern Dance
Dance Intensives

The RED School of Modern Dance located just a few miles south of beautiful downtown Hudson, Ohio, is the first of its kind in the greater Akron area that specifically focuses on the education, artistry, and various styles of contemporary dance. The RED School of Modern Dance offers daily professionally instructed modern dance technique classes, ballet, and modern-ballet fusion for all ages and levels of dance experience and to all members of the Northeast Ohio community.

Pilates classes and one-on-one professional training are also offered for all fitness levels and ages.

The mission of the RED School of Modern Dance is to expand and strengthen modern dance arts education and serve both the recreational and the professional dancer’s craft of artistic development in dance expression and movement techniques. Classes emphasize the importance of technical skills in body movement, understanding of body mechanics and articulation, exploration of dynamics and musicality, and development of artistic expression in movement.

The RED School of Modern Dance is a school where today’s generation and the next generation of modern dancers can come year round to train with the experienced professional artists of REAL.EDGE.DANCE COMPANY and professional guest dance artists.

The RED School of Modern Dance is designed to inspire and motivate dancers of all levels and ages to learn and study the art form of contemporary dance.

TESTIMONIAL: "At first, I was not sure I could get back into ballet since I am in my forties and haven’t taken a dance class since I was sixteen. However, Kelli is sensitive to the adult dancer’s needs and body type. I look forward to attending adult ballet every week because the courses at RED focus on technique and movement. I feel much more healthy and energetic since enrolling in ballet at Real Edge Dance." ~ Mahli (Cuyahoga Falls)

TESTIMONIAL: "This year RED has been one of the best experiences I could have had. It has helped me to grow so much as a person and as a dancer. For example, one of the aspects as a dancer that I have focused on was strengthening my confidence. Through RED and with the influence of Kelli, I have grown and have taken my confidence to a whole new level.  Under Kelli’s instruction I have also been able to improve my technical skills in dancing.  RED has given me the opportunity to reach deeper into dance and into developing my technique.  Kelli holds me accountable for what I do, pushes me in every way possible, and wants me to grow beyond my potential. Most importantly, she is a great role model. Being a part of RED and working with Kelli has been a great and rewarding experience.  I cannot imagine myself not being a part of this company and working with Kelli." ~ Maria Puglisi
