Ohio Dance Theatre is a professional ballet based contemporary dance company that presents works with a strong theatrical element.

Since its inception the company has stretched the limits of dance by including actors, musicians and singers in many of its productions. The critically acclaimed ODT repertoire features a wide range of style from powerful, thought provoking pieces to lighter works, which combine athleticism and lyricism.

Under the direction of it's founder, Artistic Director Denise Gula, Ohio Dance Theatre has provided artistic excellence in the field of dance to Northeastern Ohio since the spring of 1992 when it received a generous seed grant from the Nord Family Foundation.
