Nazene Langfield - Dance Dynamixs / Guest Teacher

In the early days of her dance career, Nazene was working as a club dancer when she met a DJ/producer looking for somebody to sing on his track. The song was picked up by a record company and soon after released to the charts.

After this Nazene had a very successful period in which she toured the country and choreographed her own music video, but after a while she decided to return to what she did best and teach dancing.

Her school was involved in Sky 1's "Got to Dance" show and received much critical acclaim.

Nazene is happy to be a part of Onyx Academy of Dance & Promotions and enjoys taking the time to guest teach once a term.
