WHY FIREUP DANCE?
Grateful for every single student that has ever dropped into our classes or programs! Always excited to meet you new students too! - Eki Nina
"Nina has given women a place to belong, grow, build friendships & connections.
It’s been almost 2 years since I started my dance journey & there has been a lot of ups & downs, even days I really felt like just quitting. What I’m most thankful for is the growth along the way & the amazing instructors & mentors I’ve had the privilege to learn from and dance with.
As a participant of the #AfroSpiceDance Programs, I can’t begin to explain how grateful I am to have met Nina, such an amazing person who cares about her students, it’s unreal!"

"Afro is something I always wanted to learn for the past year and was super intimidated by Beg/Open lvl classes where everyone seemed to know it all so well.
I walked away with so much even on the first week - freestyling with vocab in a genre I’ve never danced before, especially being put on the spot to freestyle in front of others, which always made me nervous.
Thank you for spreading support & positive vibes throughout class to remind us about the fun of dance."
