WHAT I LOVE ABOUT PULSEPDX

the people

Above all else, I can’t get enough of the family-feel vibes. There is ZERO pretense at this establishment; and everyone is incredibly genuine and welcoming. Whenever I have the pleasure of dancing at Pulse as a teacher or student, it’s like I’m out having fun with a bunch of friends!

MY STORY

how I got started

In college, I danced competitively with hip hop crews, which left a huge void in my life after graduation. For several years I battled with my weight and tried everything to keep it at bay, which is when I found dance fitness. I was incredibly excited to find a fitness format that appeased my goals with the movement of dance. After moving across the country to the Bay Area, however, I found myself longing for a community that I could call my own. Making friends as an adult is hard! So after trying to seek it out, I decided to let it find me, and became a fitness instructor through dance – exactly what the doctor ordered! After repeating a similar stint in Los Angeles, I found my way to Portland in 2016, where I have since been fortunate enough to partake in the wonder that is the PulsePDX community.

what students say

Nick’s class is fun and engaging for every level. It takes a few classes to learn the moves and get in the flow, but if you get lost it’s always easy to catch up! Highly recommend for anyone who likes pop/hip-hop music!

Staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. The Thursday night class with Nick was clearly a tough-knit community but one that felt open and welcoming. I was sweaty as hell and loved every moment!
