Owner of Club West Dance Studio in Norton, MA., Nicolas regularly comes down to the Big Apple Ranch to dance.
seen here dancing with Daniel Tobias
The Big Apple Ranch asked Nicolas to share with us what it’s like being the owner of a dance studio. I’m currently the owner. The studio has been in business for 6 years. I took ownership of the studio this September. My favorite part about teaching is the moment of excitement my students experience once they understand and can dance a new figure or technique they have recently been taught.
If you have friends in Southeast Massachusetts (think 1/2 hour north of Providence, RI) who want to learn to dance, send them to Nicolas!!
And ask him to dance next time he’s at the the Ranch!
