Nicole Timpone is originally from the Santa Clarita Valley where she began dancing at the age of four. She began her training at Dance Studio 84 and later at The Dance Experience where her love for dance began. Nicole received her classical ballet and pointe training under the direction of Michelle Bachar, Connie Russo, Wendy Wickman, and Anat Pelleg. She has also trained under Holly Diaz, Trevor Lynskey, Jenn Basse, and Heather Gordon while in high school studying Jazz, Ballet, and Contemporary. She attended as many master classes & dance conventions as much as she could throughout high school and college which include: 2 Days in the OC and master classes with Mark Meismer, Mia Michaels, Sumi Clements, Taryn Vander Hoop, Josh Romero, Summer Brown, Daniel Charon, Natalie Desch, Stephanie Powers, Alaine Haubert, and Garfield Lemonious.
In 2014, Nicole received her Bachelor of Arts in Dance from California State University, Fullerton. While she was attending Fullerton, she furthered her studies in classical ballet, modern, improvisation, and choreography training under: Debra Noble, Gladys Kares, Alvin Rangel, Muriel Joyce, Merle Sepel, Sarah Swenson, Courtney Ozovek, Lynn Wood, and Macarena Gandarillas. She has been trained in the Cecchetti, French, and Russian methods of ballet. Her style is versatile and she loves to come up with new, innovative choreography during her free time. Nicole still keeps current with her training, taking class whenever she can. She hopes to be in a dance company and continue her dreams of performing/teaching. Nicole is very excited to share her love of dance with Zoetic Movement!
