Grateful for every single student that has ever dropped into our classes or programs!

Always excited to meet you new students too! - Nina Bai 


"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"

"Seen a totally different side of me as a

dancer thanks to Nina.

Legit still can’t believe it is me only

5 classes later" -Erica F


"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
