Thanks for visiting my page. I am Donna Damelio Brett, a Nazareth Academy alumn that graduated from SUNY College at Brockport with a B.S. degree in Dance with New York State Permanent Certification and a Master of Arts degree from Empire State College. I continue to dance professionally with Present Tense Dance Co. and teach dance at outside professional programs such as the Nazareth College Summer Musical Theatre Program. "Dance is the air I breathe" and am so excited to begin my 8th year here at AQ. This program is a comprehensive 8th - 12th grade program which fulfills New York State Regents Fine Arts and National Standards for the Arts.
Please visit my upcoming dance events page for local community dance performances and also the pages which explain curriculum for each level of dance that we offer. Feel free to email me at any time with questions or concerns. Thanks so much and welcome to dance, the oldest form of human expression!!
