"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
Nadia is a student at Missouri State University where she is working on her BFA Dance degree.
Nadia started taking dance classes at age 10, where she quickly discovered her love for ballet. Since then, she has danced in the Nutcracker, along with various recitals, community performances, and several National conventions. She recently studied at the Rockette Summer Intensive Program in New York City.
Nadia has taught dance locally and globally on trips to Sierra Leone, Africa and India. She is a member of Inertia Dance Company whose goal is to bring dance to the community. This has allowed Nadia to perform and teach in many schools in the Springfield Public School system.
Nadia has performed in many MSU productions, as well as the American Collegiate Dance Association (ACDA). She will be choreographing the MSU Fall Dance Concert this fall. Her desire is to promote dancer wellness and performance quality among young dancers.
