Dancer. Teacher. Model

Hi, I'm a Dancer, Teacher, & Wellness Enthusiast!
I have performed with several companies across NYC, the US, and the world.
In addition to choreographing and performing in music videos, dance films, and immersive experiences, I also love teaching. I share dance, yoga, stretch & mindfulness techniques in private & group formats.
I'm passionate about incorporating the plethora of wellness techniques I have learned (and continue to develop) into my life & sharing these beneficial practices with others.

Let's tap into the body's wisdom, stay curious, and keep inspiring one another to be the best version of ourselves.

A new Dance Film
View Chew is about our perpetual consumption as a society. It offers a visual representation of how we consume all types of things - food, media, news, music, conversation, substances of all sorts - & all this hectic activity & motion just to sustain this passive lifestyle. Can we find balance & connect amongst the seductive lure of these endless offerings?

"Nika was in total command of her character. We see an almost manic side to her, appropriate for her role, as she whips across the stage. She executes her dance material - ripe with turns, slashing arm movements, and hand gestures that look like painting or writing - with a power so large it causes a reverberation in her classmates, who flee and literally duck for cover."
