Nicole began dancing when she was five and studied classical ballet and jazz throughout her formative years in Raleigh, North Carolina. She studied ballet at the University of Utah during her freshman year, but quickly discovered her love for the outdoors and transferred to Colorado State University where she completed a B.S. in Wildlife Biology. While at Colorado State University she studied modern dance and could be found dancing on mountains. After graduating, her career took her to Alaska where she also was a member of Peninsula Artists in Motion Dance Company for three years as well as taught beginning ballet and jazz at Encore Dance Studio. A little time off from dancing was filled with getting married, starting a family, and exploring Alaska. Nicole's family moved to Moose in the summer of 2015 and she's excited to join DW as a teacher and looks forward to the years ahead.
