ACADEMIC INSTRUCTION

Nickerson-Rossi's mission is to always highlight the greats and pioneers of modern dance before implementing a "stylized" genre. A strong emphasis on principals versus aesthetics.

Here is where Michael has made an impact, and will continue to do so...

"[Michael's] work was of such high caliber I immediately invited Mr. Nickerson-Rossi to serve as a Guest Arts at Santa Monica College for the Spring 2016 semester. [Michael forges] a path of inclusivity that embraces students, dance professionals of the highest caliber and members of the community at large."
