We LOVE LOVE Nans Dance. My daughter is 3 and is in the pre dance class. The instructors are AMAZING! They have so much PATIENCE with the little ones. You can tell that they just love what they do! If you’re looking for a great beginning place for your little one I highly recommend.

We absolutely love this place! Has helped our little one really grow as a person and as a dancer!

This is our second year at Nan’s and we absolutely love it. I was immediately impressed with Hillary and her ability to connect with the kids and really teach them, even the short attention spanned, sometimes tired, sometimes not wanting to cooperate ones! Thanks Hillary for introducing and teaching the fine art of dance to my little girl.
