How We Became A Family 

Founded in 1998 by Tammy Pettinicchi Gaynor, the goal at Nutmeg Performing Arts Centre is to provide professional dance instruction in a supportive, positive environment. In 2016, Nutmeg PAC alumni Jessica Leopizzo and her husband Chuck Leopizzo continued Tammy's vision when they became the new owners. Nutmeg PAC believes in a dance education that inspires young people to do their best inside and outside of the dance studio. Through proper dance training with highly experienced staff, your child will participate in a physical activity that will inspire dedication, teamwork, and discipline as well as other qualities that will last long after their dance classes are over.   


Nutmeg PAC offers a dance class for everyone from 18 months - adults and in a wide variety of styles. Performers can choose their level of intensity, from performing once a year in our June Recital to a more intensive program like Hip Hop Crew or All-Star Team.  Our Crews and Teams perform in local performances and competitions on a regional and national level. They train extensively in both their technique and choreography classes while attending all rehearsals and competitions.


*Dancers who wish to participate in the Competition Level must audition. This process begins during the Summer Intensive Dance Camp. Please contact the studio for more information*
