Miss Nina Carpenter
Technique 1/ Beg. tap Teacher
Hi! My name is Nina Carpenter and I am 24 years old! I have now lived in Reno for what just came up on two years! Coming from the East Coast a Massachusetts lady! While living in Massachusetts I danced for about 14 years, in which about almost all of them were competitively. Training in range of styles from pointe, ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, modern. Once I graduated High School, I continued to go back to the studio to brush up on my dance skill but I also started a year or two of cheerleading in college, with dance being my first love. For over the past 7 years I’ve work with children not only at the dance studio but in my daily life. I worked at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts for about 5 years at the Child Development Center, and I currently work at Aleph Academy for over two years now here in Reno! I’m so grateful for this opportunity here at Xscape with my love for teaching and dancing!
