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
"Afro is something I always wanted to learn
for thepast 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."- Brittany Z
"One of the best decisions I made this summer
is joining Nina’s FireUpDance Program"
- Clara T
"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"
- Neisha C
"One of the best classes I’ve ever had,

"Next week, I am so lucky to be involved in
another FireUpDance Program by Nina. Dancing
wakes up a whole other dimension of my being.
New friends, more sparkle & endless
opportunities to learn & grow.
This feeling is the REAL deal."-Sally S
