Nicola Kuiper

“If I quit now, I will soon be back to where I started. And when I started I was desperately wishing to be where I am now.”

Nicola’s love of dance began from an early age, training in a wide variety of dance styles and completing the RAD ballet syllabus to Grade 8. Now she is a double bassist, comedian, singer, actress and dancer. As a quintuple threat, she combines her musical and dance expertise with her comedy, performing solo and with several local sketch and improv comedy groups. She graduated from Melbourne University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Commerce and Diploma of Music on double bass where she regularly performed with the Melbourne University Symphony Orchestra. In her spare time, Nicola works full-time in accounting and is currently completing her Chartered Accounting Diploma and a Diploma of Professional Pilates under National Pilates Training. From her first XTEND Barre class, Nicola fell in love with the workout, and she thrives on the opportunity to bring her exuberant nature to classes, creating a fun and challenging workout.
