*Outstanding. Inspiring. Unique.*
After attending Nicole’s workshops I can positively say that I have grown as a musician. Her creative and innovative approach to the performing arts, combined with her wonderful charisma and passion in transmitting to others her knowledge, brings out the best in each person. I realise my stage presence has improved, my confidence onstage has grown, and my approach to each piece / performance, goes beyond the music and the storytelling, and dives into the different layers of human nature. Even my voice coach was amazed at how much my voice had grown after the workshops I attended. I continue to reap the fruits of the work that we have done together. The opportunity to attend her workshops is -without a doubt- an event no performer should miss out on, what you discover during the work together, you get from no other course, masterclass or University degree.
What people say about her work:

I had such an incredible summer working with Nicole. She has this expert sensitivity to each individual student she teaches, which is such a rarity. I really felt nurtured yet challenged and pushed further than I believed I could go. I came away at the end of my five weeks inspired and with a physical strength I didn’t know existed which I could take forward and build upon.
She reignited my confidence and belief in myself and enlightened my perspective as an actor. I basically learned to have fun again. And whenever I am working and I feel stuck I always refer back to what Nicole taught me. She’s simply brilliant. I feel very lucky to have worked with her..’Annabel Smith, actress, England
…I wouldn’t be what I am as performer and director if there hadn’t been Nicole.“

„Nicole s workshops contain a highly physical training (Yes, real sweat! But don’t worry, you don’t have to be an acrobat) and approach, but are not to be confused with “physical theatre” as a genre. She is a wonderfully demanding teacher with an enormous capacity of observing, identifying and working on the strong and weak points of every single participant, with joy/fun as an essential buddy of the work. Her strength lies in focusing on sensitivity, awareness and truthfulness in action and interaction. So, it’s not about techniques in the first place, but on YOU in your uniqueness as a performer.“
Anne, director, Germany
Nicole is one of the best and enjoyable teachers I’ve ever had. Whether it comes to theatre or acrobats, she makes every day, and every hour interesting, fun, diverse, and powerful. The lessons I’ve learned from Nicole will stay with me for many years, and I will always remember her not only as a teacher, but as a great, and totally honest friend. If anyone can have the opportunity to have a class with her, I would tell them they are lucky and enjoy every minute of it. she’s awesome.
