My name is Nicole Ricardo, and I live in Clapham, London.
 
I offer Popdance parties and workshops for adults and children, as well as Popdance Fit for adults. I am also trained to teach Barre, and HIIT to ‘the beat’.
 
I got into dance when I started studying performing arts, and did various forms of dance as part of the course. I am trained in modern theatre and tap to an intermediate level (ISTD), as well as jazz at a gold level, and open hip hop, latin and ballet.
 
I have a passion for movement with the intention of fitness and enjoyment, and I love choreographing for visual and musical expression.
 
In my spare time, I like to read, watch series and musicals, pursue further studies in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Personal Training/Health and Nutrition, and spend time exploring new and creative places and things with my friends.
 
I love Clapham because there are plenty of trees and park space as well as beautiful shops and restaurants, with easy access to central London.
 
I’m working with Popdance as it’s is a fun way to use my skills to encourage other people to enjoy movement and improve their physical and mental well-being, whilst earning a living on a flexible schedule that allows me to pursue my other passions too.
 
For the year ahead, I am looking forward to establishing myself in London and experiencing new things, as well as continuing to improve my skills, whilst positively contributing to the lives of the people I have the opportunity to work with.
