    She (Ms. Nagata) is strong, disciplined and has a loving nature, which permeates in all of her endeavors. Her choreography is inventive and she can dance up a storm.

    Corrine Nagata is a dynamo! Her joyous discipline inspired our Acting students both inside and outside of class. I often saw students doing Corrine's combinations in the hallways and in the streets. Corrine's passion for dance and teaching dance is infectious!"

    I have been fortunate enough to work with Corrine Nagata since 2009 as a parent, PTA President and co-chair of the Chinese New Year Parade Committee. Each year since 2009, Corrine has worked with Chinese Immersion School at De Avila's students to create a Winter Performance as well as choreographing our dance for San Francisco's annual Chinese New Year Parade. Her creativity and enthusiasm has won our school a trophy from the Chinese Chamber of Commerce each of the three years of our participation, two of them being first place. Her dance routines are always elaborate and her choice of music is very unique. Her confidence in the children always encourages them to rise to the occasion. The children respect and adore her. My children have participated in her weekend dance classes and always beg for more. Corrine has been a gift to our school and we are lucky to have had her touch our children's lives.
