Nikaela is a student at SJSU studying theatre, dance and economics. She loves getting to create through choreography and finding ways to light up a stage. Her dream started at just three years old when she told her mom she wanted to dance. She is still working toward her dream of making a name for herself in the dance world.

Nikaela is trained in Ballet, pointe, jazz, contemporary, hip hop, breaking, Pom and tap. She has competed at the world level on teams earning placements between 5th and 2nd in the world. Since then she has taught ages 3-adult in various styles for the last five years. She is excited to be back at Ariel's and share her passion with more people. Dance is more than movement, it's expression, a way to talk without speaking, and Nikaela can't wait to share those stories with you!
