Nicolas started swing dancing as a young boy in the early ninetees. At this age Boogie Woogie was his big craze, with competitions and fancy steps as the driving force. As a youngster the interest in Lindy Hop spurred and he was captured by the social dance scene. The aspect of communicating with people through dancing became, and still is, a big inspiration. Through the years swing music has become a bigger part of his life, in and outside of dancing.
Nicolas has performed and competed for now over 20 years and still values the show aspect of the dance very highly. This can be seen in his personal performances as well as his choreographing.
