Nicola Conraths-Lange has been on faculty for dance at the Interlochen Arts Academy since 2006. She holds an MA in Communication and Theatre Arts and BA in Psychology. Nicola began dancing at an early age at the Rome Opera Ballet School in Italy and completed her training at the London Studio Centre in England, obtaining advanced certification in the Cecchetti Classical Ballet method. Her interest in Performing Arts Medicine has lead her to present at many national and international conferences, focusing on injury prevention and rehabilitation through somatic practices such as Pilates and Gyrotonic. At Interlochen, Nicola has choreographed extensively, collaborating with composers, musicians and creative writers. She has taught ballet and injury prevention in the United States, Canada, Singapore and her native Europe. Her newest project involves developing online learning models, designing concepts for live streamed classes.
