Nicole has been dancing since the age of 6 and continues to dance to this day. She has had over 20 years of teaching experience in the both jazz, ballet and lyrical. She has entered many competitions as both a choreographer and a teacher and has achieved much success. She has been well trained in Jazz and the Cecchetti method of classical ballet and very much believes that strong ballet technique is the basis of all genres of dance. She was part of a dance company called "Canadian Girls" and trained in jazz in the United States. To teach the love of dance to young students is so important to her and to see the benefits (such as a wonderful sense of self) in later life is a great reward. She is now a mother to both a girl and boy and loves being a mom!
