NICOLE CANDICE PROSSER
Born in Port Hedland, Australia, Nicole was introduced to Ballroom dance at the age of 4 and soon started competing all over her country.
After receiving her Bachelors of Dance and teaching children in a social and competitive environment, she then moved to the USA.
Nicole has continued teaching and dancing competitively here with her husband while building a special Ballroom dance program for children in Cliffside Park, NJ, and creating ballroom programs across public schools in New Jersey and New York City, as well as building a studio of their own specifically dedicated to children.
She loves sharing her passion for ballroom dance with kids, helping them learn the athletic art that gives them strength and confidence.
Training with Ivan at The Ballroom Dance House is a dream come true for me. His generous spirit, knowledge, and passion for the art of dance and passing it to his students, is tremendous. Coupled with Ksusha’s knowledge and care for her students - dancing here has changed my life.
I have been a student of Ivan Kudashev and also a National Dance competitor with Ivan as my Pro Am partner, for the past four years. Ivan has the very rare quality of being a great teacher and also a great dance partner. This is extremely hard to find and I am grateful to have found it in him. He and his wife, Ksusha, (who also coaches me), are extremely talented, hardworking and successful professional dancers, and they also are very passionate and effective teachers, who truly care about their students.
I love their new school, The Ballroom Dance House, it is fresh, new, clean, has great energy and is a fun place to dance.
I would highly recommend the Ballroom Dance House to anyone from a beginner to competitor who loves to dance, whether just socially or professionally.
My fiancé and I signed up for 5 dance classes before our wedding. We had the best time with Ksusha! She helped us learn how to rumba and to build in spins and turns. She designed choreography to song so that we are comfortable and ready for our first dance! We really appreciated her help and her tips for the changes in the room and situation once all of our friends and family are around us.
We hope to return and take some classes for fun in the future!
