Nichole is thrilled to be a new member of the DFNW staff! Her love for dance started at a very young age studying, performing and competing in groups with The Schell dancers here in Vancouver, throughout the west coast, Australia and Fiji.
Nichole then attended Jefferson Performing Arts High School with a focus on dance. She soon after became a core member of Keith V. Goodman’s contemporary dance company, Dance Gatherer, where she performed, studied and taught workshops in a variety of schools and colleges throughout Oregon.
She has trained in Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Modern/Contemporary, Hip Hop, Yoga, Gymnastics and Taekwondo, and studied Capoeira and Folkloric dance in Bahia, Brazil.
Nichole feels so blessed to have had dance in her life and believes that artistic expression is vital to feeding our souls, empowering our creativity & confidence and helping us reach our dreams. She loves sharing her passion for dance with others and creating a creative space to grow not only as dancers, but humans.
