About Us

The Bolton Dance Academy’s mission is to create an atmosphere where children can come to have fun, meet new friends, and learn to dance, which is why we are the largest studio in the area. Nanette and her dedicated instructors work hard to provide a dance education for every age. The Bolton Dance Academy ensures that students enjoy dance while learning proper technique and gaining confidence, rhythm, and coordination. Our goal is to show our students of all ages the joy of dance and to make memories that last for years. Thank you for your interest in our studio and we look forward to sharing our joy of dancing with you!
