We are so excited to announce the addition of Nicole Haskins to our instructor roster and we want to take this time to introduce her to you!

A former dancer with Smuin Ballet from 2013-2019, Nicole was known for her high-octane stage presence and infectious energy. An established choreographer with work performed around the United States, Haskins has made over 10 works for Smuin Ballet – many of which you can see on stage in our holiday classic The Christmas Ballet!

After retiring from the stage, Nicole taught extensively in Washington state before successfully designing, launching, and leading the trainee program at Ballet Idaho. A passionate instructor and mentor, Haskins is thrilled to be teaching for Smuin Center for Dance.  

Nicole will be covering Valerie Harmon’s Beg/Int Ballet and Stretch & Strength classes on both Mondays and Wednesdays beginning the first week of October as Valerie begins her maternity leave.

Please join us in giving Nicole a warm welcome and we hope you enjoy her classes!
