Selena Pagan and Nicole Fernandez are sisters that grew up in New York City. Both girls started dancing at the local dance studio (George Conolley Dance Studio) in their hometown of Richmond Hill and soon fell in love with dance. As the years went by the girls followed their favorite teachers to a new studio called Broadway Bound Dance Center in Valley Stream, Long Island. Throughout the years they studied different styles of dance including ballet, tap, jazz. lyrical, acrobatics and production. They danced in the studio's company classes and competed in national competitions.
Over the years the sisters' passion for dance never faded. Dance is in their blood and they often spoke about opening a dance studio. After much discussion and prayer the sisters decided that this was the time...and Just Dance Dance Studio ( JDDS ) was born!!!!
Miss Selena started dancing at the age of 7. She knew early on that she loved to dance and was asked to study more styles of dance. When it was time to go to high school Selena knew that she wanted nothing more than to go to Fiorello H LaGuargia, New York City's High School of Performing Arts & Music and Art ( AKA the Fame high school). After the audition process she was accepted and spent the next 4 years studying ballet, pointe and Martha Graham style modern dance with some of the best instructors. During her high school years, while training 4 hours a day at school she would study in her dance studio as well and soon became an assistant teacher. While dancing at Broadway Bound she was given the opportunity to film for Nickelodeon. She also spent a summer studying with Ballet Hispanico.
She has owned, run and taught at Just Dance Dance Studio since it opened in 2016, and finds it is one of the greatest experiences of her life. It is a blessing to open her arms and extend her family.
