Nikoletta

Nikoletta started dancing at the age of 6 and has so far studied several and different genres, including but not restricted to ballet, contemporary, latin and commercial hip hop. She participated in numerous performances as a student of the “Prodancers Studio”, in Thessaloniki Greece. During her dancing journey she was acquainted with pole dancing and fell instantly in love with it. She soon joined Cloud9 team and trained under the guidance of one of the most recognizable Greek pole dancers, Maro Damdoumi. Nikoletta moved to Seattle in September 2014 and after a long quest found a second home at Enchant Vertical Dance, in early 2015. Her performance in 2015’s NWAAC, gave her a gold medal in her category (L2 dramatic). In 2016 NWPC, she competed as a part of the Enchanting Ghouls trio, which tied for 4th in the Groups/Doubles category. Nikoletta has been an instructor at Enchant Vertical Dance since May 2015, teaching flexibility and pole choreography.
