Dancin’ In Acton came into being in 1983 when Nancy Scott realized that there were many children and adults in Acton interested in dance but no studio to meet the need of the community.
Not being one to let grass grow under her feet, Nancy opened Dancin’ In Acton in March of 1983 with four classes at the Acton Community Center. Nancy laughed as she recalled, “We held out first recital with only two by fours as walls, folding chairs and a line drawn to signify the end of the stage.”
Five years later Dancin’ In Acton was offering enough classes to warrant it own building, which Nancy found on Sierra Hwy. The studio quickly outgrew their first premises with only one dance room and moved to the present location on Santiago Road in 1992.
In the beginning, Nancy taught all the classes but soon started hiring other teachers. One of the first teachers she hired was her daughter Cindy who, though she was only 14 at the time, was more than capable. Cindy has continued to teach at the studio as well as
Nancy’s other daughter Theresa. Both of Nancy’s daughters now have their own children in dance classes.
Dancin’ In Acton is well known for producing amazing dancers as well as the number of awards they win. The professional dance team attends many dance competitions; LA Dancemagic, Starpower, Move, KAR, West Coast Dance Explosion, Showstoppers, and Tremaine, where Dancin’ In Acton has won Best of Show three times.
