We are delighted to have had Nicola join our teaching team this year at In Step. Team teaching with studio owner, Christine, Nicola has made a great impact on the school already by developing technique in classes and demonstrating a wealth of dance knowledge to pass on to our dancers. Nicola has already made a great connection with our students and looks forward to meeting all of our dance families in person and welcoming lots of lovely dance students, too!
In Step Dance Teacher
"I have always loved to dance from a very young age whether it be in class, on stage, around the house or at a party. I started classes here in Dumfries at the age of three in styles of Jazz, Tap and Ballet. I continued to do so throughout the duration of my school years until I left to study dance in Edinburgh at Telford College gaining my HND in Dance Artistry.
Whilst training professionally, I was taught invaluable skills and technique by outstanding lecturers in styles of Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Commercial and Choreographic Skills as well as the theoretical elements of dance training.
I have performed at the likes of 'The Kings Theatre' and the 'Museum of Scotland' as well as various other locations for dance shows.
After graduating from Telford in '09, I taught dance on a freelance basis before taking time out to start a family.
I am very eager to get back into dance now that my two children are that little bit older, allowing me to begin my new chapter here at In Step.
I am looking forward to working with so many local young people and am greatful to have the oppertunity to impact positively on young dancers lives."
