Nathan Francis Bentley


Nathan is a young dancer and choreographer, and will enter into his sixth year of teaching this season. He grew up in Upton, MA where he took dance classes at Dance Works Academy starting at 4 years old. While there, Nathan primarily studied hip hop, but also trained in tap, modern, contemporary, lyrical, and musical theater. His love for dance grew with him as he started branching out into taking more classes at workshops and conventions, where he has had the opportunity to learn from some of his biggest inspirations; such as Ian Eastwood, Tucker Barkley, and Dave Scott. Today, Nathan teaches his brand of lyrical hip hop as well as the many other genres of hip hop at multiple studios, with his choreography receiving high scores and numerous judge admirations at dance competitions across New England. He focuses all of his energy on his students, making sure that they have fun with dance, while also encouraging them to work hard and grow into better and stronger dancers, as well as people!
