Nicola Earl

Nicola is a graduate of the teaching program at the Royal Ballet School in London, England. This was a three year full time training program which covered all aspects of dance training including classical ballet , pointe work, repertoire, RAD and Cecchetti syllabus, character, spanish, music, History of Dance and Benish Notation. It was at the end of this course that Nicola graduated top of her class and was awarded the 1998 Dame Ninette de Valois Award for excellence in teaching. She taught for nine years at the London Studio Centre which is a professional performing arts school where she held the position of Head of Year to all first and second year students. This involved working with each student in creating a timetable which met their individual needs and career choice. She also worked extensively with some of the leading dance physiotherapists and created rehabilitation programs to help nurse injured dancers back to health. It was here she had the pleasure of working with Margaret Barbieri, former Principal dancer with the Royal Ballet Company. Nicola assisted Ms Barbieri on her audition tours throughout Europe for her professional company Images of Dance.

Since arriving in Vancouver ten years ago, Nicola has worked at many schools throughout the lower mainland. She has been on the staff at Harbour Dance for the last ten years and is currently guest teaching for Ballet BC.

Nicola has recently enjoyed adjudicating for the Prince Albert Festival of Dance.
