Stine Nilsen

Artistic Director


Transitions Dance Company - 1997

I studied with a diverse group of students and teachers, giving me the skills and inspiration to work with many different people in my career. I liked the emphasis on both academic and practical skills, considering the impact of dance on society as well as my personal enjoyment of it.
