2022-2023 Back to School Activities Guide - The Cleveland Moms


Whether you’re ready for it or not, back to school time is here! If you’re looking for after school activities or extra-curricular programs for your days if the kids aren’t in school yet – The 2022-2023 Back To School Activities Guide, sponsored by First Federal Lakewood, has something for everyone. From the arts to sports & everything in between, I’ve put together a huge list of places that offer kids programs for the fall & beyond. I’ve tried to locate age ranges for most locations. The ones listed were confirmed. It’d be best to check directly with those that aren’t specified. Each location is linked directly to their websites where you can learn more & register.

Emjaez Dance Studio in Bay Village is celebrating 19 years of Dance! Offering classes for ages 2.5 through Adult in Tiny Dancers, Tiny Yogis, Acro, Ballet, Contemporary, Heels, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Lyrical, Musical Theatre, Tap, and an all Boys class. Your child will be empowered with not only dance, but also life skills in a inspiring, positive, safe, disciplined, creative, fun and nurturing learning environment that fits each family’s needs for your child’s dance education, all while spread goodness and kindness throughout the community and within our studio. Emjaez specializes in themed dance camps and events and hosts Magical Birthday Parties in any theme you can dream of.
