We are conveniently located at 388 South 22nd Street, just off Rt. 79 in Heath, Ohio. We are just minutes from Newark, Granville, Thornville, and Hebron. We offer a specialized pre-school area with smaller equipment to enable our youngest students tolerant and grow in a safe environment.

Our dance and gymnastics facilities offer state-of-the-art training equipment and a dedicated staff. Our dance teachers and gymnastics coaches are members of Dance Masters of America and USA Gymnastics, having received specialized training in their respective fields.

Our classes meet primarily after school and run throughout the evening. We teach September through May and have a revised and limited schedule during the summer months.

We also host birthday celebrations! We offer the use of our facility, under the supervision of our staff, on weekends. Parties are designed to meet your personal needs.

The Owner/Director of Avanté Gymnastics and Dance. She is certified to teach by Dance Masters of America, Ohio Dance Masters, Dance Educators of America, and International Dance Entrepreneurs Association.

She has participated in many dance and gymnastics workshops throughout the country. Her connection to our young students is evident every day, as she is able to motivate each child to reach their potential in their individual endeavors.

She is a graduate of the Dance Masters of America Teacher Training School and is certified to teach Ballet, Tap, Jazz, & Modern. Aly is member of USAG and is certified to teach/coach gymnastics at every age and ability level.

She began her life at Avanté when she was a child. She was on both the competitive dance and gymnastics teams. Kristie graduated from Denison University and has returned to coach for us. Following in her footsteps, her 3 daughters are also on both competitive teams.


My children have been involved in both dance and gymnastics at Avanté for two years. There are not enough words to communicate my gratitude to the entire staff for the love they have shown to our family. My kids have grown so much, not just as dancers and gymnasts, but more importantly, as people. Like home, Avanté is a place where they know they are loved unconditionally. I can't imagine being anywhere else.

We’ve been part of the Avanté family for a few years, and my daughter thinks of it as her second home. The staff is wonderful, and they’ve helped her grow both as an athlete and a person.

Julia Smith

My daughter has been a member here since she was 5 years old. We are in our 8th year, and she couldn’t be happier. This place has become our second home and our family. Dance routines and costumes are age-appropriate. Instructors are patient and instill great work ethics in the children—a great place to feel welcome and build confidence. A fun environment while learning skills needed to become a great dancer or gymnast.
