“Southern Strutt’s…level of excellence in the performing arts area is truly unparalleled. They consistently train and produce some of the finest and most talented dancers/performers in America. The entire studio can be summed up in two words…Class Act.”

Gary Pate

National director/choreographer, Starpower National Talent Competition

“Southern Strutt exemplifies everything I look for in an exceptional dance studio. The talent, energy, and most importantly, the professional and supportive nature of all involved with Southern Strutt is VERY hard to find.”

Gil Stroming

National director, Break the Floor Productions

“In all our years working with Nancy Giles and The Southern Strutt, one word describes them, and that is CLASS! Nancy strives to teach her students the importance of teamwork within her studio, as well as working well with others and their peers. They are respectful to adults and have great attitudes. They are a true talent, and always a joy to watch dance.”

Marcy Tuttle

National director, Star Systems National Talent Competition

“Southern Strutt plays an integral role in the Irmo and Dutch Fork communities, always promoting positive family values. As a parent of former Southern Strutt dancers, I saw many benefits from the standards toward professionalism.”

Robert W.

Gantt, school board member, Lexington/Richland District 5

“We feel privileged our son is benefiting from the Strutt experience. We look forward every year to Strutt’s annual concert as much as we do the Super Bowl, Final Four or World Series. Even more than the incredibly artistry, choreography and dance, we are grateful for the many positive mental and physical benefits that carry over outside of dance.”

Jim and Allison Redick

Irmo, SC

“I am honored that my child can attend and receive the very best training in dance and learn life skills. Every person has a talent at something and the staff at Southern Strutt has a way of finding that talent and celebrating it through the creative expression of dance. We have made very dear friends from being a part of the Southern Strutt family.
