This week our dancers are getting the opportunity to have an original ballet choreographed on them. An experience not many dancers including professionals get. We are thankful to Erich Yetter for bringing “Hansel and Gretel” to life!

Get to know our owners! Katie and Grant Dettling are thrilled to bring over 40 years combined experience in professional ballet to Akron families! While Katie began serious dance training @ Nan Klinger Excellence in Dance (right here in Cuyahoga Falls) and completed with the Washington School of Ballet in DC, Grant started in Spokane, WA, and continued on full scholarship with Pacific Northwest Ballet School and the prestigious School of American Ballet ✨ Meeting early in their dance careers, Katie and Grant married in 2004. They had the rare fortune to maintain positions in ballet companies together for 18 years, including the: Washington Ballet, Texas Ballet Theater, Ohio Ballet, and Dayton Ballet. While Katie and Grant danced hundreds of works from the classic, contemporary, and modern repertoires, they especially enjoyed sharing the stage as: Titania and Oberon in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” Snow King and Queen in “The Nutcracker,” and Mina and Dracula in “Dracula.” While concluding their performing careers as Freelance Artists in NYC, Grant obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Arts Management and Katie an Associate’s in Dance from Empire State College. They served as Rehearsal Assistants and Company Managers for Dances Patrelle, where they were proud to stage/produce several ballets including the 20th Anniversary Yorkville Nutcracker featuring over 150 children 😍 Katie and Grant welcomed a son in 2017, subsequently moving back to Akron to be near family and enjoy a kinder pace of life. Experiencing the journey of parenthood solidified their belief that the teacher/student relationship is one of the most important in life, and often children teach us more than we teach them. Inspired to bring something new to young families in Akron, Katie and Grant were introduced to Tutu School and knew immediately it would be the perfect fit 🩰
