Meet Your RUNWAY Family

Photo of three sisters in pinkWe are three sisters, best friends and business partners – co-founders and directors of RUNWAY Dance Connection. From a very young age, RUNWAY has been our dream. Childhood memories are of dance competitions in our family room, with the fireplace hearth as our stage. Friends and family (especially our lucky brother) would judge these incredible performances. Little did we know this sibling rivalry would encourage each of us to reach career highs and lead us to RUNWAY! It has taken a family-sized effort to fuel our RUNWAY vision and make dreams come true. We couldn’t be happier to start this journey with you.

Between us, we’ve danced competitively for a total of 25+ years. We’ve lost count of our dance competitions, nationals, showcases, year-end shows and intensives. The dedication, discipline and sheer hard work associated with competitive dance always pushed us to be our best selves. Nothing has changed! These lifelong lessons have continued to shape us in our adult lives and we now want to share what we’ve learned. Our promise is to work tirelessly to ensure RUNWAY is the most professional, unique, fun, family-friendly dance competition. It’s our hope that RUNWAY becomes the dance competition everyone talks about and a community that everyone wants to become part of.

We have combined our years of passion and experience to bring you Canada’s newest, most exciting dance competition. Riley (professional media) has been a producer for CTV News, W5 and Discovery Channel. Holly (on-air broadcasting) has been an in-arena host for Mississauga Steelheads and Skate Canada. Kelly (dancer) has performed in dance tours in Japan, China, the Czech Republic and throughout North America.

We hope that every RUNWAY dancer brings their best, reaches new heights, makes new friends and leaves with fun memories they will cherish forever.

We would LOVE to have you join our dance family. Add RUNWAY Dance Connection to your next competitive season and let’s start making dance memories together.

See you on the RUNWAY!

Riley, Holly and Kelly Nimens
