Nicole Thornton

Dancing since the age of 3, Nicole has always loved the stage!  A 5678 Dance alum and a graduate of Florida State University, she moved to New York City with an internship at Broadway Dance Center where she trained with some of the top choreographers and instructors in the industry. She has performed all over the country as a dancer, singer, and actor.  Some of her favorite credits include the Smoky Mountain Opry in Pigeon Forge, TN, Cedar Point, Hersheypark, Stone Mountain Park, and the Aurora Theatre right around the corner in Lawrenceville!  Nicole loves to teach all styles of dance and to show her students how to perform by telling a story!
