Miss Nancy is a New York City based Dancer and Actress. She is a trained Dance teacher. As a high school student she was given several opportunities in Concert dance, performing with BalletMet and the Syracuse Contemporary Dance Company. At 17 Nancy was accepted to the Pace University Commercial Dance Program and eagerly attended on an academic scholarship. While in college Nancy worked with the Greater Ocean City Theatre Company as a Principal dancer in "Swing!” She was also a member of the American Swiss Ballet Company. There she was given the opportunity to work as a rehearsal assistant, running rehearsals with herself and company members. She worked as a Dance Captain to Larger than Life Productions' 2015 summer touring revue. Shortly thereafter she originated the role of Vershinin in "When Johnny Comes Marching Home," an original play, in Manhattan. Besides performing, Nancy is also passionate about teaching, and has received education in dance pedagogy. She apprenticed for 2 years with a Royal Academy of Dance and is an American Ballet Theatre certified teacher. Her degree in Commercial Dance also allowed opportunities to train in Jazz, Tap, and Musical Theatre pedagogy. She currently teaches all dance styles at multiple dance academies, private schools, and educational centers. She continues to train in dance herself as well as advance her education in pedagogy through workshops and classes. Fusion warmly welcomes Miss Nancy back for her 4th season working with our Ballet, Lyrical, and Preschool Program students!
