NANCY STEWART, DIRECTOR

Nancy Stewart earned her Bachelor Degree in Ballet with teaching certification from Virginia Intermont College in Bristol Virginia. Nancy is also certified in Autism Movement Therapy.

She has also worked with the Florida Citrus Sports Summer Sports Camp as well as several area schools and organizations to develop dance programs specific to their needs.

Nancy has been featured in multiple magazines, newspapers, and dance publications. 

Nancy’s overall philosophy of dance education is to have the students learn the history of dance, develop an appreciation and respect for oneself, others and the arts. Most importantly they must feel that deep down, dance is FUN. 

In 1985, Nancy opened her own studio named after what her students called her, “THE DANCE TEACHER.”
