Nicole Pierce is Artistic Director of EgoArt, Inc., a Boston-based dance company she founded in 1999. She has created over 30 dance works for her company and maintains an active freelance career as a dancer, teacher and choreographer in the Boston area. Her work has been hailed as “expansive, muscular movement etched with vivid detail” by Karen Campbell in the Boston Globe. Pierce serves on the dance faculty of Tufts University, Emerson College, and Green Street Studios and has conducted master classes at many schools and colleges including most recently Yale University and Roger Williams University. Known for keen musicality, rigorous structure and strong performance skills, Pierce has carved a niche for herself as teacher for advanced dancers looking to hone their technique, improve stage presence and cultivate their own clear dance “voice.” Nicole is also a classically trained pianist and maintains a private practice teaching piano to children and adults.
