“There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good.” ~Edwin Denby

Introduction & Teaching Style

Regardless of your experience as a dancer, my hope is that our time spent together be a fun and soul opening experience.

The goal is to have fun as the beat takes you away! Learn in a pure way how to better express yourself through dance.

Do you want to learn the grace and romance of Tango, the rugged edge of Hip Hop, the smoothness of Lyrical, the fundamentals of Jazz & Ballet, the athleticism of Brazilian Capoeira, the explicit stories expressed in Polynesian & Tahitian dance, the carefree style of Swing, or the sensuality of Salsa?

Dance Bio

TEDx talk and dance performance 2014

TEDx talk and dance performance by Nicole Barrote


Trained at University of Oregon in ballet, hip hop, modern and jazz. Following college, I sought more exotic dances in various countries. Learned cultural dances like: Salsa (in MX, Puerto Rico, Peru, Argentina, Chile & Spain), Drum dancing (in Jamaica), Poi (in Guam), Tango (Buenos Aires) and Tahitian hula (in Hawaii). I love and appreciate every type of dance!
Recently the Latin dances, especially Salsa have been my focus. I moved to San Diego to surf by day and dance Salsa by night. Turns out I’m a terrible surfer, yet enjoying being among some of the best Latin dancers in the world. Living in S.D. has given me the opportunity to collaborate, work and compete with accomplished dancers and develop new dance choreography, specific to styling and syncopation.
I continue to seek new experiences that help me become a better student, teacher and performer!

There is a dance community in every city – San Diego has one of the best. I invite everyone to come with me on a journey to experience a movement meditation called dance. The atmosphere is safe and inspiring. Beginners and experienced dancers learn quickly, and confident in their moves.
