The Cuyahoga Falls News Press reports that the Cuyahoga Valley Youth Ballet has changed its name to Ballet Excel Ohio.

The change in name has been made to reflect the group’s “commitment to achieve excellence in its dancers and training and remain steadfast to its roots of classical ballet.”

As a part of the Klinger Excellence in Dance Studio that was founded in 1975 by Nan Klinger, the company is one of the oldest youth dance groups in the country. It is known for its spring production that is based on children’s literature each year.
