Keck spectroscopy is presented for four dwarf elliptical galaxies in
the Virgo Cluster. At this distance, the mean velocity and velocity
dispersion are well resolved as a function of radius between 100 to
1000 pc, allowing a clear separation between nuclear and surrounding
galaxy light. We find a variety of dispersion profiles for the inner
regions of these objects, and show that none of these galaxies is
