Studio Locations: Akron and Perry


Images In Dance was established in 1985 by Robin Cotler because of her passion for the arts, her love for children and her desire to share the benefits of dance.  Images In Dance is currently one of the most respected and progressive names in dance training.  Robin, has through the years, developed specialized programs for ages 2-5 that develop creativity, coordination and confidence.  The programs continue from there for ages 6-adult in a variety of recreational dance classes as well as programs for the more serious student.


At Images In Dance your child will be instructed, encouraged and empowered to develop the skills and style of their desired dance discipline under the guidance of a nurturing and qualified dance instructor.

It is our policy to give every student, age 2 years old to adult, the same quality dance training, whether they study one hour per week or fifteen, in a fun and encouraging environment. In addition, your child will develop an appreciation for the arts that will last a lifetime.

Our main goal is to see that your child feels good about what they have accomplished, and as a result they will have a better understanding of rhythm, timing and moods of music, as well as a healthier attitude toward their physical and mental well being.

We look forward to sharing many memories, friendships, fun, performances, teamwork, and accomplishments with you and your children.

Images In Dance a place where your Little Star Soars!
