Who We Are

In 1963, a young lady named Margaret Johnson started a dance studio in Garfield Heights, Ohio. The Studio's curriculum included ballet, tap, jazz and acro for ages pre-school thru adult.

With the addition of gymnastics in 1974, Johnson Dance & Gymnastics was born. In 1989 we moved to our new home in Valley View , this allowed us to offer more to the community through quality dance and gymnastics. Celebrating our 50 years in business, Johnson's is expanding once again to accommodate our expanding enrollment. We are adding over 2000 square feet, new equipment and foam pits!
