Pille's School of Dance
Patty has been dancing for 39 years and has been teaching for 30 years. She has been with Queen City Gym/Kids First Sports Center for 18 years.
Her training includes: ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop and modern.
Patty’s studio has been voted the “Best Dance Studio in Cincinnati” by Cincinnati Family Magazine.
Patty Pille’s School of Dance is for all ages 2 ½ and up.
Starting with magical movement (2 ½ - 4) ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, modern, contemporary, lyrical, adult ballet and motion fitness also for adults.
Patty is best known for her story themed shows. She has two recitals each year. One for the younger students who are in the 2nd yr ballet, beg. jazz, tap and hip hops down to the pre-ballet classes. The young student’s recital consists of 18 to 20 numbers and is no longer than an hour and a half long. It is also themed to coincide with the older recitals theme. This year’s recitals are Jungle Fever (pre-ballet I through 2nd years students) and Lion King (3rd year students through our most advanced students). I believe that when the audience knows the story, it makes it more enjoyable to watch.
What to Wear
Ballet Class – Leotard and tights-skirts may be worn if they are knee level or above. Pink leather or canvas ballet shoes. We do not recommend the satin slippers found at Target for any of our classes, they tend to fall of the feet.

for Young Joints
In the Kids First tradition of safety, our dance studio is furnished with a
'Dance-Flex' floor. This unique suspended hardwood floor was designed exclusively
for the benefit of our students. Two layers of high density closed cell foam,
combined with three layers of wood allow this floor to flex approximately 1/4" on
take-offs and landings, dramatically reducing stress on young (and older joints).
