In the summer of 2004 we relocated from the south Nashville/Nolensville Road area to the great city of Smyrna, and was made to feel welcome immediately.  Over the last 9 years in Smyrna our studio has grown by leaps and bounds.  "Dance With Stacey" aspires to be a place where studenet and parents alike feel appreciated.  I look forward to sharing my love for dance and the performing arts with your family.
