Nina grew up in a small town in Finland and started her dance career training in Jazz, Hip Hop and Street dancing. She was early on very drawn to Latin rhythms, which steered her into Latin and Ballroom dancing. Nina became part of the Finnish National Team in 10-dance and placed 2nd in The Finnish 10-dance Championships.
Nina also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Physical Therapy and is also a licensed Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor.
In 2012 Nina moved to New York City to continue her career as a professional dancer, competitor and teacher, specializing in International Latin and American Rhythm.
Nina teaches both social dancing and competitive dancing and she welcomes all levels and ages. She also enjoys coaching couples (pro/am couples, wedding couples, juniors) and ladies styling. She also uses her background in PT and personal training to further help her students achieve their goals on and off the dance floor.
