Dance has been a huge part of my life and always will be. After training at a prestige stage school and travelling the world on numerous contracts from corporate gigs, US and European tours resident shows and cruise ships.
I decided to return back to the U.K. and broaden my skills with going into the fitness industry.
This has been just as successful, with running my own dance fitness business for nearly 10yrs, teaching lot of well know brands, winning local and National fitness awards.
Organising charity fitness events and attending events as both a participant and most recently presenting Panache Dance Fitness.
I saw a niche in the market and decided the next step was to create my own concept and build brand that I could hare and spread the love of both dance and fitness using music from Stage & screen.
Nikki has trained in all aspects of dance from just 4 yrs old, with I.D.T.A. Nikki, then successfully got offered a place at the prestige Laines theatre arts in London. Nikki completed 3 yrs on the Musical Theatre course.
Nikki has performed literally non-stop all around the world. Credits include Fashion Shows, Pop Videos, U.K. tours, USA tours, Japan, Afghan Tours, West-end and lots more.
Favourite styles to dance/choreograph are Jazz and Commercial..
Currently teaching her own busy dance classes for both kids and adults in the Twickenham, Teddington and Bentley area. This includes delivering Panache Dance Fitness Rehearsals both in the community and virtually.
Nikki says “I am so honoured to be working closely with Panache Dance Fitness, I absolutely love the concept. I am able to share my passion of dance and fitness and what better music to inspire the people than from Stage & Screen”.
I started dancing at the age of 2 and has never stopped. I am ISTD trained in Ballet, Tap and Modern dance.
I left school and pursued my love for all things dance by graduating from Preston Dance College in 2001. Straight from college, I went into professional work, dancing in contracts abroad and in the UK. I have a passion for cabaret style of dancing which was where most of her European contracts took place.
Alongside dance, I have been involved in Illusion and magic acts for a number of years, once performing for Bill Gates at a Microsoft Convention in Copenhagen.
A tour of circuses was next for me as i danced in the rings of some of the most famous circuses in the world.
My love for dancing started at a very young age taking me up to my teens gaining qualifications in tap, modern and ballet.
Sport and fitness has always been a large part of my life. I played competitive team sports for many years and in the last 3 years I have gained qualifications to teach fitness brands. And more recently presenting at fitness conventions. I have always enjoyed attending the theatre especially musicals.
The fusion of dance and fitness in Panache allows me to combine my passion for both, whilst all being set to the music I love!
