interview

After studying the art of dance for nearly 18 years, Nikki opened the doors to her dream at the age of 19 and never looked back. After years of dedication, numerous awards, prestigious invitations, and renowned training, her opportunities were endless. Teaching, however, is what she knew she was meant to do. Nikki loved dancing, however she did not love the drama that seem to come with it. It was obvious that a dance school that provided the technique of professional studios with the atmosphere of "public classes" was desperately needed. That's exactly what she did. Starting out with only 10 students, Simply Nikki Dance Studio has managed to expand its clientele without losing its personal, hands-on instruction and "small" studio attitude. Several staff members, parents, and students are alumni from those original 10 which is a true testament of the impact she makes on the families she works with. She started out dancing at Laurel Ballet school and continued her career at Mercyhurst College and took summer college classes at Point Park University. She has won many first place awards and other events. I asked, “what was your worst memory about dance school while you were still there?” She responded, “ one time, I was extremely sick, but I had to go to class to watch and observe anyways. They gave me a pen and a notebook and my teacher told me to write down every pattern, to every count, to every song, to every beat. It was a mess. Ballet is french and some of the positions are hard to spell, but my teacher made it clear that she wanted everything spelled right too. I never sat out of class again. It was way better to dance even though you felt like dying rather than having to write all of that nonsense out in that stupid notebook.”  She has told me many stories about her auditions and she has always told me, “there is always someone better than you. You may be good, but someone is always better so you might as well have fun, try your best, and dance for yourself.” I asked her why did she continue to pursue dancing as her career even though she knew it wasn't guaranteed a job or money and she said, “ some people are good at math, I'm good at dancing. I love to dance and that's all there is to it. That's why I started my own studio, that way I could continue to be involved with what I love to do even after my body can't keep up with it anymore.”

While this may be secified to just ballet, this video sends out a very important message.  There is a lot that goes into dance, and that includes the accessories.  Shoes, whethere they be jazz, ballet, tap, etc. must fit well.  This also goes for tights, leotards, etc.
