Celebrating 19 years in business!
Nadine's Dance Center provides quality dance instruction in a healthy positive environment, encourages creativity, focuses on each student individually, and encompasses all areas of performing arts . We teach dance and performance skills that a student will use for a lifetime-but most importantly, we encourage self confidence, friendships and a dance family.  The studio offers Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Pointe, and Contemporary.


A lifelong native of Gloucester I knew at a very young age that I wanted to teach dance.  I studied classical ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, pointe, and hip hop.   After receiving a B.A. in Fine Arts Dance from Eastern Connecticut State University in '98 I returned to Gloucester in 1999 to pursue a teaching career.  Throughout college, I was a varsity member of the nationally competitive Dance Team, a member of Repertory Dance Troupe, and served as President my junior year and senior year.  Following graduation, I was hired by the University as the advisor, technical director, and choreographer for RDT and I also taught in Connecticut.   Upon returning to Gloucester, I taught in Beverly, Gloucester, Danvers, North Shore Community College, and Hamilton-Wenham Public Schools.  I established and coached Endicott College Dance Team for 5 years.  After much traveling to teach, I opened Nadine's Dance Center in 2002.  I have performed with Forty Steps Dance Company in my adult career.
The students who elect to compete have received High Gold and Gold Awards, High Score Awards, several Special Recognition Awards, and bids to Nationals.
