Nutmeg Performing Arts Centre

A family oriented studio for more than 20 years! 


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. In 2021, Libby Blauvelt followed her dream of becoming owner and director of the studio that has been her second home for 23 years.


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 that will last long after their dance classes are over.   


Nutmeg PAC offers a dance class for everyone 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 All-Star Team.  Our All-Star Team performs in competitions on a regional and national level. They also participate in community performances, such as the Rockwell Festival and the Mum Parade.

*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*
