Ballet, Pre-Pointe, Tap, Jazz, Hip-Hop, & Toddler Dance
Nancy Jenks, more commonly known as Miss Nancy at the studio, began dancing at the tender age of 3, and she hasn't stopped dancing since! As a child she trained at Les Petite Artists and Jordan School of Dance in Indianapolis, Indiana. After graduating from Broad Ripple High School, she went
on to earn her B.A. in Dance from Butler University...."Go Dawgs!" She danced
with three touring companies at Butler, and after graduating moved to
Colorado Springs where she danced with the Colorado Ballet Company.
After this, her dance career took a bit of a detour as she took time off to
raise three children, acquire a Certificate in Early Childhood Development,
and direct a daycare of 150 kids.....that was a unique experience! She has
taught in several dance studios throughout the tri-state area, including
Dance Therapy at Shepherd University, and Musical Theater at Western
Maryland College (now known as McDaniel College) in Westminster,
Maryland. Currently she is quite involved in raising the three newest members
of the family, her grandchildren Lillian, Alaina, and Casey, all born this summer
and fall. And of course, she has aspirations for each of them to someday train with
Grandma Nancy. Without dance and children the world would be in utter darkness and chaos! So, keep dancing!!!!!
