Paul Stocker Humanities and Fine Arts Center in Elyria, Ohio, opened its doors in 1980. The 2019-2020 season marks 39 years of the Center continuously presenting the best of the performing and visual arts as well as films for the people of Lorain County and beyond. Over the 39 year history, Stocker Arts Center has become one of the top performing and visual arts venues in Ohio. Almost two million people have visited during its first 38 years of operation enjoying one of the thousands of live performances, films, art gallery exhibits and/or community rental events. Named after the late C.

Elyria Ballet Partnership: Avon Lake Dance

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Elyria children from Avon Lake Dance. Avon Lake Dance studio owner, Kristin Perry, has been in business since 1992. She graduated from Baldwin Wallace College with a degree in Sport Dance Art Management and resides in Avon Lake with her husband and three boys. Kristin and her instructors continue their dance education through various seminars and classes each year. Miss Kristin's Dance Studio is designed to be a safe and nurturing environment in which your child can strive to build confidence, self-esteem and self-discipline. In every class, your child's social, emotional and creative development is taken into consideration. The class structure is aimed at developing your child's basic motor skills, coordination, muscular awareness, and flexibility. Your child will also begin to understand and develop an appreciation of music and the performing arts.
