I have only the best memories of dance classes with Miss Nancy. She made me and every student feel so special, regardless of our ability, or lack thereof. We were all shining stars to her. She was truly a special lady, and I'm sure she is still dancing somewhere in the heavens. RIP Miss Nancy.

My deepest condolences go out to Miss Nancy's family and friends. I was surprised and saddened to hear of her passing. I started dance classes with Miss Nancy in 1967, when I was three years old, and continued my classes until the early 1990's. I especially remember her kindness and support during my father's illness and subsequent death in 1974 when I was just 10 years old. As a child she was my dance teacher and mentor but as an adult I considered her my friend. We've remained in contact all these years. She was, by far, one of the kindest and gentlest people I have come across in my lifetime and she will be sorely missed.
