1969: The Year Everything Changed
By Brendan (Skip) King of the King Centre of the Performing Arts
1969. It was a very good year.
- Man landed on the moon
- Mets won the World Series
- Knicks and Jets finished the year as champions
- Raquel Welsh
- And Nancy and Brendan King got married
It was the beginning of a performing arts dynasty. Over 20 Broadway shows, Rockettes, TV, ballet companies, Cirque du Soleil: the list goes on. It’s about a small studio in Northern New Jersey that became a known as a place where young children could learn in a fun environment, and their parents are content that their children are being taught by Nancy King and her dedicated staff.
Nancy King’s success is seen in her own family who have been in 10 Broadway shows as well as her extended studio family. Her granddaughter, Madison, is currently on Broadway in Matilda. She has done a great job of making the King name a nationally recognized symbol of quality and consistency.
