Miss Nicole has been an admired and creative choreographer and dance instructor at Dance Expressions, for the past 9 years! She loves the reward of a seeing a child's face when they accomplish a new dance move or combination, which they have never done before or worked hard to master. “It always warms my heart to see my students being proud of what they have done, while having fun doing it!” Miss Nicole is very respected by both her dance students and our parents. Her favorite natural high, is hearing her dancers say after a performance, "Did you see that Miss Nicole?! We did great!!” Miss Nicole is excited to be celebrating her 10th anniversary with Dance Expressions!!
