Director of Hip-Hop Program

Nathalie “Nat” Villacrusis received her early years of dance training at Joni Reese’s Wheaton Studio of Dance in Maryland. She continued her studies in dance at the University of Maryland College Park and joined UMCP’s hip-hop team DYNAMIC. Finding her strength in this genre of dance, Nat later became a member of Culture Shock DC (CSDC) in 2005 and from 2007 to 2016 was Artistic Director for their youth troupe, Future Shock DC. Nat has gone on to direct troupes at both national and international showcases and competitions. She is currently teaching at Savage Dance Company (Ranked in the Top 5 competitive dance studios and Best in Hip Hop in 2017 and 2019 by Dance Awards) and is the Commercial Dance Department director for Metropolitan Academy for the Arts. Nat was also a proud member of DMV’s all female dance crew KickRocks, and co-founder of their youth crews, The Pebbles and Little Rocks.
In addition to her dance career, Nat is a graduate of The University of Maryland R.H.S School of Business and proud employee of the US Army. She hopes to continue her passion for teaching and sharing the joy and opportunities dance has brought to her life with young dancers who will shape the future of dance.
