After high school, Nicole furthered her dance education studying at Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago, Broadway Dance Center, Steps on Broadway, as well as many other renowned schools and on convention circuits. She opened Nicole’s School of Dance in 2001 to share her passion for dance with students of all ages. In 2002, the first Nicole’s School of Dance competition team was assembled and has continued to grow ever since, competing at the regional and national level. Nicole continues to develop her dance knowledge by attending conventions with her students and judging competitions and high school dance team auditions. Over the years she has won many choreography awards but her biggest reward is watching students grow throughout the year and performing at their annual recital.
Nicole has four beautiful children that spend a lot of time with their dance family. Outside of the studio Nicole enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
“Compare yourself to the dancer you were yesterday” is Nicole’s favorite quote and she truly believes each dancer brings something to the floor. For Nicole, teaching dance is a dream come true. She strives to instill in each of her students the confidence and poise that will serve them in every step of life.
