Nanette grew up dancing, singing, and performing in musical theatre. By the time she was twelve she had identified her true dance love as ballet. By the time she was fourteen she was a ballet scholarship student at the University of Utah and the Ballet West Conservatory. At sixteen she was offered an apprenticeship with Ballet West and danced professionally with them for the next three years. Nanette was the principal ballet instructor for Ballet West’s Ogden satellite school at the Eccles community art center for several years. With family life taking priority Nanette has continued to be a guest instructor at the invitation of various dance studios. Nanette is now very excited to be a part of the Jazz Dancer Studio team.
