Nicole began dancing at Bataille Academie when she was two, and continued to take classes until she graduated in 2004. Nicole was a member of Bataille's first Dance Company to compete out of state in Myrtle Beach, SC. In middle school, Nicole began demonstrating for Bataille teachers and became interested in dance instruction. After assistant teaching for a few years, Nicole decided to combine her love of dance with her drive to teach. She started teaching dance classes in 2004 while pursuing a degree in Elementary Education at Northern Illinois University. Nicole enjoys taking part in master dance classes. She has worked with many different teachers and choreographers from around the United States, including Joel Hall, members of Aerial Dance Chicago, River North Chicago, Giordano Dance School and the New York City Ballet. Nicole taught classes and choreographed competition routines for one year in Huntsville, AL, before returning to Bataille in 2010.
Outside of dancing, Nicole competes in bodybuilding and fitness competitions. She recently completed her Group Fitness exam and is now an ACE certified instructor. Nicole feels the best part of dancing is the adrenaline attained when performing on stage and being in the lights. Her favorite type of dance is acrobatics, and she loves guiding students towards achieving their goals and celebrating their accomplishments.
