Patricia McBride, and Janet Jackson, to name a few. Her first and only film 'ing'
was awarded the Grand Prix at the XXVI Asolo International Art Film Festival in
Italy and Best First Film at the International Film Festival South Africa.
The ballet was her first true love. She attended Walnut Hill School of the Arts
and also trained extensively under the brilliant Meredith Baylis ( Ballet Russes )
at the Joffrey in New York. Her career began at the Stuttgart Opera House
dancing the role of Carlotta Grisi in Pas de Quatre and Balanchine's Tarantella
under the direction of Richard Englund.
Ms. Romine had a very diverse career touring the world, Japan, South America,
Europe, and she was a guest artist with many different companies including the
Kansas City Ballet and the Los Angeles Civic Ballet. She was also a Solid Gold
Dancer at Paramount Studios and a principal female dancer for the last season of
the original television series FAME at MGM studios.
While still dancing, she was a founding member of a very successful arts
conservatory and moved into the role of Artistic Director for a professional
dance company. She created over 28 original works and several full length
contemporary story ballets to critical acclaim. She has choreographed several
productions for television and a PBS special she choreographed was nominated
for an Emmy. She has directed and choreographed industrials, theatrical events,
and large scale productions.
The legendary Oscar and Grammy award winning singer Andy Williams engaged
her as choreographer/director for his production shows for many years. Along
side some of the top names in the industry, she has been involved in almost
every aspect of show design.
She has taught master classes in Ballet and contemporary dance throughout the
U.S. As a Master Teacher, she is focused on clean technique but is deeply
committed to teaching the artistry of what it means to be a dancer. Former
students have gone on to professional careers including Atlanta Ballet, Ballet
Hispanico, Pacific Northwest Ballet, to name a few, and several have appeared in
Broadway shows in New York and continue to work with various production
companies around the world. Students have also received partial and full
scholarships to schools such as the Kirov Academy of Ballet in Washington D.
C., the Bolshoi, the Joffrey Ballet, Harid Conservatory, The Rock School, the
Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet in New York, and many others.
Choreographer, producer, director, writer - her work reflects her passion for the
incredible adventure of being here and the ever present inspiration of
possibilities. She tells stories with movement. With music. Crafting characters to
weave tales that take the audience on a journey. With great attention to detail,
she embraces mystery and wonder in all her work.
Currently, Nicole is working on an original theatrical production entitled "Moon", a mystical tale told
through voice, music, dance, prose, and painting. Dave Klotz from Canada and Laura Stevens from the
UK are composing, with an additional piece by Lilia Yurchuk from the Ukraine. www.theatredelalune.net
In 2007, she was named Volunteer of the Year by Jackson County Family Court for facilitating classes in
life skills through the arts for high risk young women in the juvenile system. She continues to teach and
believes that every single life is an invaluable work of art in process...
She is deeply passionate about animals, nature, literature, and mysticism. For tragic whimsy, she loves to
sing the music of Edith Piaf with the brilliant pianist and composer Thom Greathouse.
