Growing up in the mountains of Northern California, Nicole Howard was inspired by and has dedicated her life to the art of movement.


She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance from Cal State Long Beach in 2003 and is a company member of the Nannette Brodie Dance Theater since 2021.


She’s danced and performed with a wide variety of companies and studios over the years, including the Jimmy Defore Dance Center, Jazz Spectrum Dance Company, and Pacific Academy of Dance.


Nicole is also the founder of the award-winning Align Pilates and Yoga Studio in San Juan Capistrano, California. She is a certified master trainer with Body Arts and Science, as well as a certified nutritional therapist.


When she’s not dancing or tending to her studio, Nicole stays very busy getting her daughter to dance classes and music lessons, as well as hiking with her husband and adorable little pooch Guapo, in the coastal hills around her home.
