Nadia El Menabawey
Nadia began her journey into dance at the tender age of just 3. Since then she was certain that her future lay in the performing arts and to date has amassed over twenty years' experience within the profession.
During her school years through to 16, Nadia was heavily involved in the community, lending her talents and assistance to local dance schools and classes, which progressed into teaching classes of her own, allowing her to gain valuable insight and experience working with young people.
At 17, Nadia relocated to London in search of further education, gaining a place at the prestigious Masters College of Performing Arts. Through years of hard work and determination, she graduated with a Diploma in Dance and Musical Theatre as well as earning her teaching qualifications with ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance).
Post-graduation, Nadia spent several years working in London, exploring the various areas of the industry, including numerous appearances on television, pantomime, corporate events and even modelling to name a few. Not to be phased by her busy lifestyle, she also found the time to gain qualifications as a certified Zumba and BootyBarre instructor.
After the sun had set on her time in London, Nadia chose to venture further afield to Morocco when she landed herself a 6-month spot in a luxurious hotel as a Le Strass Showgirl. After her contract had ended, Nadia made her way back home to the North East of England with her sights firmly set on returning to her beginnings in the local community, now as a fully qualified dance teacher. The following years saw Nadia working in numerous dance schools as well as teaching extra-curricular classes in tap, modern, ballet, commercial, stretch and conditioning, contemporary/lyrical and musical theater.
After years of working for others, 2017 saw Nadia deciding to go it alone, opening her very own Performing Arts School, The Loft Studios, in Middlesbrough, where she plans to use her 22 years of knowledge and talent to develop the next generation of dancers.
