Lorainna Nedved

Owner & Creative Director

Lorainna Nedved has been a dancer since the age of three. She was raised in her local studio in Exira, Iowa and danced on her high school team. During high school she not only performed with the All Iowa Honor Drill Team for 3 years, but also performed the Outback Bowl and Citrus Bowl halftime and pre- game shows. While studying dance at Iowa State University and taking part in many dance, theatre and musical productions both as a performer and choreographer she met her future husband and soon after the moved to Des Moines. That is when she began teaching for the Superstars in both their Norwalk and Grimes locations. Lorainna has taught everything from tap to jazz, to hip hop to cheerleading, tumbling and everything in between. She was the director for the Grimes Superstars Competition Team since its birth in 2004. When it was time to start a family she retired from coaching cheer to focus solely on teaching dance and spending more time with family. She has continued to run the Competition Dance program and in 2018 became the Studio Director for the Grimes Superstars. When the ownership group of the Superstars was ready to retire there was no question as to whether or not Lorainna would take over the studio. Owning and running a studio had been her dream since high school and she was not going to let the opportunity slip away. Lorainna takes extra care of her students not only in their dance paths but in their paths to becoming successful young adults. Her passion for teaching has led her to also share her love and knowledge of dance as the Coach for the DCG Varsity Dance Team and Choreographer for the Urbandale Community Theatre. She has done choreography for many high school cheer teams, dance teams, show choirs and national level pageants but has always put the Superstars first. She is excited to continue to teach and help her students become the best dancers and individuals that they can be. Teaching them not only dance but sportsmanship, teamwork, dedication, responsibility and confidence in themselves.
