"Nikki dynamically impacts the endeavour of teaching and developing the skills of young actors. During lessons, she puts forth an exemplary effort into fostering empathy and compassion with her students while also placing physical-spiritual emphasis through exercise and meditation. She drives them to go beyond their emotional barriers and intertwine the subtexts of dramatic scenarios with their own internalizations. Nikki's headstrong approach as an instructor parallels the whole-hearted elegance, strength, and conviction she exudes in her performances.”

Art feeds soul!
I learned the aesthetics of this beautiful thing we call art from my main teachers, Gene Lasko and Elizabeth Kemp. They helped me understand this craft to the point that it became my life!
