Nan's Dance Hillary White
Nan’s youngest daughter, Hillary White, has a very strong background in dance. Our owner and director, Hillary, grew up at Nan’s where she received the basis for her dance training. Hillary attended North Carolina State University from 2000-2005. While there, she was on the NC State Dance Team, and performed at football games, basketball games, and Nationals Dance Championships. In 2004, Hillary graduated with a Bachelors of Environmental Design in Architecture. In 2005, she completed the 5-year architecture program, and graduated from NCSU with a Bachelor of Architecture. After working for a large architecture firm for several years, Hillary went out on her own & became a licensed architect. After getting licensed, she started her own company, Studio H Architecture, PLLC, where she designs single-family residential homes. In the same time that she became an architect, she also started teaching for a local dance studio. While there, she taught ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, pre-dance and cheer. During that time, Hillary realized how important it was to her that she carry on the Nan’s tradition and open up the Raleigh location of Nan’s School of Dance. She is excited to share her love of dance with students and parents!
