Nancy Raddatz has gracefully exited the stage of this world with the love and support of her family and “dance family”. Nancy spent her 85 years in West St. Paul, sharing her love of dance with thousands of students, spanning five generations. She first began teaching dance in 1948, and became an iconic entrepreneur of the community, building The Nancy Raddatz Dance Studio, Inc., which carries on her legacy into its 73rd year of business. Nancy had a passion for teaching dance to any and all, which moved her to create her non-profit, The Uniquely Abled Dance Center, Inc., to provide dance lessons free of charge to visually, hearing and physically challenged students. Nancy was also an accomplished artist and enjoyed creating commercial art for community publications, painting canvas backdrops for her annual performances and creating custom pieces for her friends and family.
