Born and raised in Auburn, NY Nikkia first discovered her love of dance at age 3. She started her dance training with Rhythm in Motion where she took tap and ballet. In addition to dance classes, Nikkia has been involved in both community and regional theater productions. She has spent time performing with the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse in productions such as "Singin' in the Rain," "George M!", and "The Music Man." Nikkia joined Absolute Dance in high school where she broadened her dance horizons and discovered her love of modern and contemporary dance. After graduating high school, Nikkia attended Syracuse University and was an active member of both TAP Team and Orange Pulse Dance Troupe, a philanthropic dance organization on campus. Nikkia choreographed for both dance organizations and served as the Artistic Director for Orange Pulse. Nikkia is thrilled to be back at Absolute Dance, a place that has allowed both her dance technique and artistry to grow!
