Nina Soto

Nina was born in Springfield, Massachusetts. At two years old, she started training at a competitive studio, New England Dance Centers. There she performed under the direction of Loree Cloud for 15 years, in styles including contemporary, jazz, and ballet. Nina also traveled on the weekends to numerous conventions. At 17, Nina graduated early and moved to New York to complete Broadway Dance Center’s Professional Semester, where she received training in street and commercial styles, as well as vocal technique and musical theater classes. Someone who has influenced my dancing immensely is one of my first dance teachers, Hayley Cloud. Seeing her dance when I was younger is what inspired me to dance professionally. She has always been a role model for me and is someone who I continue to look up to today. A favorite saying of mine is; “there is no substitution for hard work.”
