Local dancers spend the day with Jim Nowakowski from, “So You Think You Can Dance”

[Press Release]

Time To Dance Studios in Niagara Falls, NY, recently hosted Jim Nowakowski for a five hour workshop ending with a Q&A session. He taught a group of local students, ages 4-14, ballet barre work, learned an original choreography piece, and were given corrections. During his Q&A session, he answered many questions from how to handle an audition, to healthy eating, and whether or not he had a girlfriend! His natural connection with the children was amazing. He has a gift for being motivational and positive, and we look forward to working with him again in the future. Time To Dance studio owner, Susan Akin, strives to give her students every opportunity to expand their dance education. She hosts at least two, in house workshops per year, and often opens them to the public. We are hoping to work with Mr. Nowakowski again in the future. His professionalism, talent, and natural ability to teach young dancers, is truly a gift.

Jim Nowakowski began his formal ballet training at the Timothy M. Draper Center for Dance Education Rochester, New York. In 2002, Jim attended the Youth American Grand Prix where he was presented the Junior Grand Prix Prize. Later in 2004 he took home the junior Men’s Gold and again in 2007 was awarded the Senior Men’s Gold Award. In 2015, Jim made the Top 6 of So You Think you Can Dance and completed a 75-city tour of the United States and Canada. Most recently, he became a featured cast member in Travis Wall’s “Shaping Sound” Company and joined them on the road for the fall 2016 tour.
