Nancy Valencia (Commerce)

October 4, 2015


Nancy Valencia grew up in the City of Commerce and has a long history of community service. Growing up in Commerce she played sports and has participated in dance since age 3. As Nancy grew older, she volunteered her time as a dance instructor and then earned her way up to becoming an advisor for the dance team. She has always had a passion for dance and by sharing her expertise she is giving back to the community where she received so much. Given Nancy's experience she could very easily work for a professional team or pursue her own dance business, but instead she has chosen to invest in her community. Nancy works at the City of Commerce Parks and Recreation Department teaching dance to children. Nancy is truly a classic example of someone paying it forward. From a preschool dancer, to the Queen of the City of Commerce, to today, 18 years later, she continues to encourage youth to be positive and participate in their community. Nancy and her family are firmly settled into their community and love the City of Commerce where they plan to stay. Thank you Nancy for your loyalty and the inspiration that you bring every day to the young people of Commerce.
