HOW OUR PROGRAM WORKS:
We have TWO studio locations just a mile and a half from one another.
Martell Tu (Ages 2 through 4th Grade & Adult Classes) located in the popular Wallhaven district of Akron, OH.
1530 W. Market St, Akron, OH 44301
Martell Main (Ages 5th Grade through Adults) located in the Historic Highland Square community of Akron, OH.
788 West Market St., Akron, OH 44303
The division of our studio currently suits the above age levels. This offers us the ability to focus closely on the development of each student whether they are a young child, adolescent, or adult.
We offer many styles of dance including: Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Modern, Musical Theatre, Lyrical, Acro, Fusion, Clogging, Zumba and exercise classes. Our program is offered to anyone ages 2 years through adult, with beginner through advanced levels available. The foundation of our program is based on ballet training, and all of our teachers are experienced and qualified in the styles they teach. We are a non-competition studio and conduct our school based on weekly classes and a 9-month calendar.
MARTELL TU CLASS STRUCTURE
Martell Tu is our studio designed for younger students, ages two through 4th grade.
At Martell Tu, classes are broken into the following groups:
- Move With Me (ages 2 – 3 OR not potty trained)
- Pre-School (4 years old by December or 5 years/not yet in Kindergarten for 18/19 school year)
- Kindergarten (ages 5 -6; currently enrolled/enrolling into Kindergarten for 18/19 school year)

MARTELL MAIN STUDIO CLASS STRUCTURE
At our Main studio location, we host classes for ages 5th grade through adults.
For Martell Main, we designed a benchmark program of Levels I through VI (Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern, Lyrical) . Levels I and II do not require that the student participates in Ballet, and Levels III and up are considered our “Accelerated Level Program” which involves a Contract Agreement related to participating in Ballet, attendance requirements, daily conduct, and ultimately, promotion to Level III by audition and/or invitation.
Additionally, we offer Hip Hop, Clogging, Acro, and Fusion based on age groupings of 5th-7th Grade and 8th-12th Grade.
Students who are new to our dance studio will be evaluated by participating in an audition or a class to give us clear understanding of their knowledge and ability to execute the style of dance in which they are interested in pursuing at Martell.New students ages 5th grade and up should audition for placement.
