Nicole's vision for Tip Tap Toe Dance Studio is to promote a healthy professional environment where dancers of all experiences come together to inspire each other and enrich their surrounding community.
As a dancer, Nicole won top honors at numerous competitions all over the US, and would like to share that experience with your children. EnCore is a perfect venue for the children that crave the competition of dance.
