Teachers and Classes

Welcome to Nia at The Dance Space in Greenwood! We are a group of independent Nia teachers who each set our own prices, schedules, and maintain our own bookkeeping. We are always encouraging new students to explore other classes (both at The Dance Space, in Seattle, and worldwide!). We team-teach for benefit classes, special occasions/holidays, and at our yearly open house. We have had Nia classes at The Dance Space for over eight years now. Seriously, we LOVE each other and collaboration is central to our success. We sub for each other, check in on each other, honor each other, and respect each other. It doesn’t get any better than this! Our dear Nia colleague Gretchen Musgrove has stepped back from Nia teaching for a while to focus on mothering. The vibrant Deborah Davis joined us in September, adding new class times on the weekends. And in December, Ann Nicolaysen moved to West Seattle so we will be missing her at The Dance Space. (But check out her new classes at The Center for Movement and Healing!)

Please join us in welcoming two wonderful and talented Nia teachers to TDS!
Naomi Scher and Sommer Joy Albertsen! Their schedules are below.
