Meet Owner Nicole

Nicole’s studio owning dreams were inspired when she began choreographing dances to Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera for her sister, cousin, and friends to perform at slumber parties.  It has always been a dream of hers to share this love and passion for dance with others.  Nicole danced from age 3 through high school, and then went on to dance in college.  She was on the Endicott College Dance Team for two years and competed at UDA Nationals at ESPN Worldwide sports arena twice. She also completed a minor in dance taking courses in modern dance, jazz dance, choreography, dance teaching methods, ballet, dance history, world dance cultures, and more.  She performed in 4 dance ensemble shows and 2 student choreography showcases during her college years.

In 2015, Nicole was one of 18 dancers selected out of a group of over 400 young women auditioning for a cheerleading position with the New England Patriots.  She completed 4 seasons with the New England Patriots cheerleaders and has been a line captain for 3 of those years.  As a part of the Patriots Cheerleaders, she performed at all New England Patriots home games and participated in numerous promotional appearances and special events on behalf of the organization. She traveled to the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, Aruba and St. Maarten to pose for the New England Patriots Cheerleaders Swimsuit Calendars as well as dance in shows for the resort and hotel guests.  She was also one of 8 women to be selected to travel to Mexico City to perform in 2017 for the Patriots vs. Raiders game. Nicole had the privilege to perform at THREE Super Bowls; LI, LII and LIII.  Two of her favorite moments in her life came from cheering on the sidelines of Super Bowl LI & LIII.  Watching the Patriots make history in Super Bowl LI  by coming back to win from the largest deficit in Super Bowl history and also being the first Super Bowl to go into overtime was indescribable.  She had danced in Red, White, and Blue Confetti not once but twice! Those moments make her feel extremely grateful to have dance bring her such wonderful life experiences. It was through this professional dance position that she also found her love for fitness.

Nicole wants to provide people with a community where they feel strong, and confident. She promotes self-love and body confidence in all of her classes. She wants to create workouts that affect the way you feel about fitness. She wants it to be an experience every single time. She is a certified Barre Instructor, and her classes will make you sweat and smile!

Nicole wants to share all she has learned as a professional dancer to help you follow your dreams too! From technique, to stage presence, to fitness, she will show you the ropes and be cheering you on the whole way!
