“I cannot emphasize enough how much I admire and enthusiastically recommend Elizabeth Fernandez at both personal and professional levels. Her attention to detail is stunning..."

Susan Grossman Nieves

“I have seen Elizabeth’s work with children and I have been impressed and in awe of her skills. She possesses a special and sincere rapport with them that is rare in a person so young. She has the heart of a child and a trusted role model.”

Dear NAYB Dancers and families,

Congratulations on a truly magnificent job dancing in the show!

We were so very proud of the progress of all the students thanks to their focus and hard work!

Please watch for fall emails and web updates for our fall program.

We are moving on to larger space options in the neighborhood to offer better training and room to really dance! Our weekend schedule will be expanded as well!

Thanks again for a great spring term, happy summer and see you in the fall!
