STU Arts Dance Intern: 

Nardine Guirguis

Hello, my name is Nardine Guirguis, but everyone calls me Nara for short. I Have recently joined the STU Arts Dance Family this past October and have been loving it.


Originally from Burlington Ontario, Canada, I have attended Linda Collins School of Dance, McCarthy School of Dance, as well as Carol Kitchens Dance Centre, where I was professionally trained in ballet, jazz, lyrical, and contemporary, as well as tap and hip hop. I have completed my Royal Conservatory of Dance from grades 1 through 8 of ballet, and in the summer of 2015, I completed my Teacher Association exam with the Royal Academy of Dance in Toronto Ontario. Throughout those years, I was also competing professionally with both Linda Collins School of Dance, as well as Carol Kitchen’s Dance Centre. Academically, I have recently graduated from Carleton University In Ottawa, On. Canada in June of 2019; holding a Degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice with a concentration in Law and minor in Human rights and Social Justice. Currently I attend Brussels School of International Studies here in Brussels Belgium while currently studying International Law with a secondary specialization in human Rights law. Dancing, Choreographing, and to be able to create art and stories through dance has always brought me happiness and joy alongside a dance family within the studio. I only hope and dream I can bring others the same joy and happiness that I have learned growing up to them and their classes.


I look forward to learning and growing as an artist and individual through the privilege of working in STU Arts Dance, thank you!
