Doing my best to get classes back up, thank you for all who are checking in on myself and family. would want us to keep dancing. We will resume in July. Thank you everyone. Forever in my heart. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ


Thank you all for your kindness, texts, calls and coming by checking on me. Iโ€™m not ok but will be. was so instrumental in helping me with my business. He was very scared to social dance but jumped in to help me every time. He had no experience and was terrified to learn salsa, merengue and bachata! But he excelled and wouldnโ€™t let me rest until he was a pro. Weโ€™d go out salsa and bachata dancing, and he was like โ€œOmg this is so fun, I love this!โ€ He met so many of my dance ladies and trainers they told me he was so amazing to dance with because he made you feel secure and had a strong and gentle lead. Even on tough days where I felt like giving up on training or going to continuing education classes he was always there to say, โ€œNope not letting you give up or be lazy Nic!โ€ I was going through some major challenges and was doubting myself. But he never let me quit. So today Iโ€™m going to get back up and resume classes and going out dancing this weekend. Canโ€™t promise you if it will be any good, I appreciate your allโ€™s love and support and thank you for your prayers.

My love you so much and going to do my best to honor your legacy. I know your in no pain and radiating love and energy.


We lost our and two other family members in a car accident yesterday. And another is in the hospital. I canโ€™t breathe or think or feel anything. was the co teacher in my classes. He always brought fun and silliness to my class. We together helped create the dance business to reach out to Native youth, adults and elders. Iโ€™m lost and utterly beyond help. I mourn this loss immensely. I canโ€™t dance anymore.
