Dancing requires a flat, even surface, much like tennis, hockey, and pre-Socratic models of planet Earth. Plant your feet on the surface of the ground and follow the beat with today's Groupon to Nan’s School of Dance summer dance camps at its Lake Jeanette or the Horse Pen Creek Road studios.

The experienced instructors at Nan's School of Dance instill the essentials of leg shaking, toe twirling, and break dancing in youths during five-day cavorting camps. Kids ages 4–7 can caper through the Dancing Princess camp, a ballet and creative movement class held in a cushioned, mirrored studio. Along with learning frolicking fundamentals, students will craft their own princess costume to take home and live out the dress-up-and-dance dream of being a princess without having to sign a prenup with a frog. Cheer camp, a pompon-empowering course of stunts, tumbling, and cheering, allows spirited peoplelings ages 5–9 to decorate posters and megaphones to accent their newly honed moves. In Hip Hop camp, steppers ages 8–11 learn funky stylings of modern street steps to a soundtrack of clean, modern music. Youths will be equipped with an arsenal of choreographed moves, a precise sense of timing, and an increased flexibility to help them serve monsters living under their siblings' beds.
Nan's School of Dance
If the floorboards at Nan's School of Dance could talk, they would speak kindly of the tapping toes and pointed feet that have graced their surfaces for more than 40 years. In 1975, owner Nan Smith began teaching students in Yadkinville and later opened a dance studio in Greensboro in 1982. Twenty years later, Nan passed the torch and ancient family sweat towel to her oldest daughter, Jennifer Grinwis, who runs the studio with the same passion for teaching dance and instilling self-discipline, poise, and self-esteem.
Talented dance instructors lead students of all age levels in disciplines such as ballet, jazz, tap, and hip-hop. Patrons can also sign up to for a Kenpo karate classes with resident black belt Jamie Cummings or get hips swinging and calories spontaneously combusting with Zumba classes infused with Latin dance moves.
