I love Ninas school of dance. This is my daughters first year dancing and she is in Ms. Nicki's class. She has so much fun and she wishes she could go everyday! While she is in class i sometimes get the chance to see the company girls

Personally I love Nina's School of Dance, most importantly my daughter loves Nina's School of Dance - you have taught my daughter for years; until she took a break due to a family member (her grandfather) needing round the clock care,

Well my last post was in December of 2010 and another 2 years have passed. My daughter and I LOVE this studio and I would still highly recommend Nina's. My daughter has a visual perceptual disorder and her 7 years of dance have helped

There are 5 positive reviews for this studio on this site that are all posted on the exact same day. That alone should send up red flags to readers. I can't prove that these reviews were written by Nina's staff or Nina herself, but they

Nina Wheeler is a professional. She teaches dance technique and showmanship. She also teaches human relations. She cares about each and every child that walks through her door-most of them DANCE out that same door. She places very high

Having had a daughter that danced at Nina's for many years, I know Nina is the best dance teacher around. She has passion for dance & her dancers. Say what you will, but there's no disputing Nina loves dance, her dancers. and dance

No matter what anybody says about Nina or her dance studio, being a part of that amazing group of people is something that I will never forget. Nina is an amazing person and not only teaches you great dance skills and exact technique,

As a former dancer for Nina Wheeler, I can honestly say that it was the best experience of my life. Not only are you taught to be a great dancer, you are also taught how to be a productive member of society. For 7 years, I had class 4

When I danced there was a scale and we had to weigh in front of everyone. I wasn't there to be embarressed. My momma tried to get me to continue & spoke to Nina. It made me feel like everyone is supposed to be thin even though my momma

My little girl has taken at this studio for 4 years. She started when she was 2. Her self esteem is glowing and she is learning dance techniques. It is so wonderful to see the learning taking place and the heart Nina shows all her kids.

To be honest with everyone nina's is amazing if you want your kid to play and all that crap take them to a dang playground but if you want your child to learn dance and maybe a little bit of displine too then go to Nina's but nina's is not

The one thing that is ALWAYS constant at Nina's is she teaches from the heart. She sees a dancer in every child. Does she yell at students NO and if you have said she does you don't listen at all. As loud as some of those classes get

Not enough time or space to write how happy we are with Nina's. We were drawn there by the fact that they were unstoppable, at competitions. Our son was 15 and our daughter was 12, when we saw a need, to leave our old dance studio, in order for them, to develop, to their full potential. From day one, they were treated like one of the dance family, by staff, as well as, by other students. We traveled 2 1/2 hours round trip for dance classes. We took this trip 4 to 5 days a week. Our daughter, was younger than the rest, of the class, because she had to take in the same classes, with her older brother. After only a few months, she could hang in there and compete, with the group. That is proof that a dancer is only as good as their teacher and great teachers can develop a student, who really wants to excell. Our son and his wife are now teaching dance, in Hong Kong,and have a
Christian Dance ministry. Our daughter, has just taken a job teaching Middle and high school, at a local dance studio. She did not apply for the job. The teacher called her and asked, if she would teach for her. Nina also tries to instill morals and values, in her students that go with them throughout their lives. Nina's also does a lot to help others, especially the Duke Children's Hospital. I can truly say Nina's has a big heart in many ways!!! We developed relationships that will last a lifetime. We love Nina's School of Dance and The Company Dancers of Durham!!!!!!

DOWNSIDE:
This was my first official dance studio when I was 4-6 years old. I HATED IT.

Nina herself taught our jazz/ballet/tap combo class, and she went into a screaming frenzy during nearly every class. If I made a mistake, she screamed at me. If my neighbor made a mistake, she screamed at me. If anyone anywhere made a mistake, she screamed at all of us. I burst into tears a lot.

In short, Nina made me hate dance. When I quit her studio, I never would have believed that I would go on to become a lovely dancer elsewhere, perform professionally, and enjoy dance for the rest of my life. But I was a very sensitive little girl.

UPSIDE:
I've seen her 'older' girls perform recently, and it seems that this tough-love approach does bring the results on stage. They looked great.

Perhaps this studio is simply better for teen and preteen dancers who need harsh reality-checks to improve and who can handle receiving criticism in front of their peers. If this is your dancer, she can probably excel at Nina's.

Pros: Tough love gets results

Cons: This studio can wreck self-esteem

.

It was said to us by a long-time parent, "Nina is hard on these girls but she really loves everyone of them". If you like this kind of old school approach then Nina's is for you. But if you just want your kid to have fun in a supportive environment then go somewhere else.

Pros: very good recital production

Cons: culture of harsh correction and communication

Nina's School of Dance is a great dance school. Nina works so well with young dancers and helps them develop their talents. When you attend a recital you get to see all the hard work that she puts into the children. The dance classes are reasonable and the instruction the children get is great. I highly recommend this dance school as the best in the city, if you are looking for somewhere to send your child for ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, etc.
