Nicola Collie is a dancer, actor, and choreographer who grew up in the South Island of New Zealand. Her dance work and site-specific improvisation/choreography pay equal focus to performer and environment, highlighting the symbiotic relationship between subject and setting. Nicola was accidentally propelled into acting after being asked to audition and then cast as the lead role of Everly in the indie feature film “Lotawana”. A love affair ensued…
With a background in classical ballet, Nicola moved into contemporary dance at a tertiary level. She received her Bachelor of Dance from the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne, Australia. Upon moving to Los Angeles from New York in late 2017 she began regular scene study classes and dialect work to follow the unexpected path of acting in addition to dance. The result of which has been a symbiotic relationship between body, voice and performance.
Nicola has been fortunate enough to work for choreographers such as Ryan Heffington, Nina McNeeley, Denna Thompson & Celia Rowlson-Hall. Artists such as Meghan Trainor, Jason Mraz, Walk The Moon, Dean Lewis, Rhye, Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson. Brands such as Marc Jacobs, Warby Parker, Desigual, Converse, Joe Fresh, Atelier Doré, Adidas Originals, Reebok, Equinox Hotels to name some.
