Nan's Dance
Nan’s School of Dance began when Nan Holt Smith started teaching 40 students in her hometown of Yadkinville, NC in 1975. She and her husband, Chuck Smith, established the 1st Greensboro studio in 1982. Nan’s oldest daughter, Jennifer Grinwis, grew up in the studio, started teaching after college, and has been director since 2002. Jon & Jen Grinwis now own the company. Nan’s School of Dance is a family business of providing a service for other families in our community. We operate our two locations in Greensboro, NC as well as our first studio in Yadkinville, NC.

The objective for our studio is to provide top quality instruction at a competitive price. The objective for our students is to encourage technical proficiency in their area of interest, but more importantly to build self-discipline, poise, and self-esteem. From September through May, we offer quality instruction in ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, pointe, hip hop, and martial arts at all levels. Our studios are equipped with cushioned, floating floors, mirrors, and barres designed specifically for dance. All classes are taught by qualified, adult instructors!
