Our Story

Nancy Holden, founder of “Dance With Nance” began her ‘mobile’ dance company in 1979 bringing dance to children at Preschools, Elementary Schools, Recreation Centers, YMCAs, and Boys and Girls Clubs.

Branching her business from Missouri, Colorado, Florida, and California, Dance with Nance has taught dance & music in 200 schools with 2000 students nationwide. With a staff of 20 teachers throughout her 30 years of service, the vision of having young children meet friends at school, learn the creative arts in a safe environment and share their love of dance and music during parent review days, was a dream and a blessing for our staff to witness every day!


Miss Nancy's Friends is our production company for "Original Children's Musicals." Developed by our staff from a passion to help children express themselves through dancing, singing, and acting, Miss Nancy's Friends uses music, dance and puppets to help children learn about the "attributes" and "values" that are inside of them. "What's Inside of Me?" "Hey! Here I Am!" and "Music Pizza Fridays for Grandparents to bond with their grandchildren are themes of our weekly YouTube videos, concerts/assemblies and teacher training  programs to help children learn these values through music!.

Original music written by John Schaller who plays Uncle Johnny at TuneTownKids.com. Miss Nancy and Uncle Johnny have produced a 7-song CD along with 7-videos to add to the Miss Nancy's Friends Original Children's Musicals.

Unique "Finger Puppet" and "Tapping Lap Tables" are also used to help children that have special needs or injuries dance and sing while they sit comfortably with finger puppets that have taps on them! All scenes, story lines, music, and videos are based on 50-attributes such as Love, Friendship, Confidence, Forgiveness, etc., and they all are available for purchase for parents and teachers. (See the "Shop" page). We sing, dance, and act with great lyrics, choreography and a fun production!
