“I had Nadia as a teacher when I was only eight years old. Now, ten years later, her methods of teaching have stayed with me. She always pushed me to be the best that I can be in all styles, and showed me the importance of being open to learning new things, while still challenging myself in what I have learned in the past. I am so lucky to have had her as a teacher and I know that she is changing many dancers lives now, and will continue to do that as she starts this new chapter of her life.”

-Olivia Reck, 18 years old, LACSA Student
