Nicole VanderWall


Nicole has been dancing since the age of three. She originally focused on ballet and later added jazz, lyrical, stage (musical theatre), tap, hip hop and modern. In 2007 Nicole achieved the mark of distinction on her intermediate RAD exam. She has attended both Dupree Dance Expo, in Seattle and Triple Threat Dance Convention, in Vancouver, on scholarship. Nicole has performed in the BC Country Music Awards in 2005, in the Vancouver Olympic Closing Ceremonies in 2010, and in Disneyland in both 2005 and 2011.

Nicole trained as part of the Scholarship Dance Vancouver 2012-13 company where she challenged herself to take her technique and artistry to the next level. Nicole continues to learn through experiences at the DanceLife Teacher Convention 2013, DanceLife Retreat: The Future edition (focusing on the 8 and under crowd) in November 2013, and getting certified by Acrobatic Arts. She is now in her final year of study for her BA in Dance Education from the RAD and Bath University. Nicole loves performing and tries to inspire that same passion in her students. She believes that dance should be a fun, positive environment to learn not only dance but important life skills about hard-work, personality, sportsmanship and self-confidence.
