Dance instructor Loretta Hein has been dancing ever since she could walk on her tippy toes. After years of study at local dance studios during which time she participated in various competitions in groups and as soloist and received numerous awards, she began teaching at NCC in 1987. She is a native of Bethlehem and graduate of Northampton Community College and Moravian College. Throughout her many years at NCC she has taught a variety of dance classes for both individuals and couples. She firmly believes that anyone can learn and enjoy moving their feet to the beat. She also enjoys the challenge and creativity of developing choreography for special events such as weddings and quinceaneras. Loretta is also active in Bethlehem's tourism industry at local historical sites. In her spare time she enjoys reading, playing the piano, and attending plays and concerts in the Lehigh Valley.
