Knock Knock: The Sequel

Introductions continued from yesterday... here is everything you ever wanted to know about Nicole!Nicole has been Irish dancing for 6 years, and took mainstream dance classes (ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical) for 18 years prior to that. She took up Irish dancing after developing severe tendinitis in her wrist. She wanted to stay active, and Irish dancing was the perfect solution, combining her love of dance with lack of arm movement! Although she doesn't like to admit it, she thought of taking Irish dancing after seeing Riverdance...

Like Ally, Nicole is currently a proud student of Michael and Patricia Farrell at Greenfire Academy in Toronto. She has been competing in Prizewinner 16 & Over competitions, and really really really wants to get into Prelims some time soon. Nicole will be hanging up her shiny solo dress for this year though, as she is taking a break from competing to have her baby.

In the craft department, Nicole is responsible for knitting. Having just gotten a knitting machine, she is very excited about making all sorts of new creations! Her favourite types of yarn include anything glittery or fuzzy.

Hi, I just found your blog through Etsy. I can't tell you how cool it is that there are other crafty Irish dancers out there. I was one for 9 years, and had to quit when I went away to college - I am missing it like crazy though, especially when march/st pattrick's day comes around. Anyway, just thought I'd say hello!
