ca8a1e_c6ac602e80d14c219dfa5368089fa3d4Dance Nation Company, LLC was founded in 2013 by Angel Merritt who is originally from Detroit, Michigan. Angel began dancing at the age of 7 years old and danced until high school when she decided to focus on her other passion, varsity cheerleading. Angel’s dance background includes jazz, ballet, modern, and liturgical. After high school Angel enrolled in a dance class in college and was asked by her dance teacher to audition for the dance company. While dancing for the dance company Angel began to teach liturgical dance at a local church.

In 2006, Angel married her high school sweetheart and on October 6, 2007, she gave birth to a beautiful set of twin girls. After giving birth she had to put her dancing shoes down and focus on being a mother and wife. In 2008, she began teaching liturgical dance at the church again up until she gave birth to her third daughter in 2011.

After taking another break to focus on raising her daughters she started to teach a free dance class in her basement. After about 6 months, the number of students began to increase and space was getting tighter.

With the support and encouragement of her husband, family, friends, and students they pushed her to fulfill a lifelong dream and open Dance Nation Company. Now, this dance studio has grown and offers a wide variety of dance classes for people of all ages. From dance fitness to tumbling classes for toddlers, Angel has done her best to create a place where people call fall in love with the sport just as she has.
