About Us


From a dancer’s first plié to their final pirouette, they'll always notice fit and comfort of their shoes. At Stage Center, we understand your need to move freely and comfortably both at the barre and on the stage. That’s why we’ve been helping performers across Ohio and beyond achieve the perfect fit since 1979. From tights and leotards to tap, ballet, jazz, and theatrical shoes, we offer the largest selection for all degrees of performance. And our knowledgeable, experienced staff offers personalized shoe fittings for individuals as well as groups. Between our large variety of dancewear and our custom fittings, we’re an essential destination for young and professional performers alike.
