Hailing from Charlotte, NC, the influence of Carolina Shag started around the early age of 5 from her mom. Finally convinced at the age of 12 that it wasn’t just a dance for old people, she began competing. Nikki has aquired numerous titles from The National Shag Dance Championships; Non-Professional division, Professional division, and Overall Champion with various partners. She has won the USA Grand Nationals Team and is a Strictly Swing division champion. Nikki has served many years as a member, choreographer, and captain of the National Shag Dance Championship Team and was inducted in 2006 to The Beach Shagger’s Hall Of Fame as a Keeper of The Dance. Nikki loves sharing and giving back to preserve Carolina Shag traditions, the music, and the lifestyle that was passed down from others before her. Nikki is looking forward to a great event and weekend!
