Nicola Balhuizen Hepp graduated from the Modern Dance department of the Theaterschool in Amsterdam in 1999. Since then she has worked primarily as a teacher and choreographer basing herself in the Netherlands. Her interest in combining projected images with movement in live performance brought her to pursue a postgraduate degree at Dance Unlimited. During this time, apart from investigating media in relation to movement, she researched and questioned her own approaches to creating work and the results that it delivered. She has become increasingly interested in non-conventional approaches to the audience. As part of her studies, Nicola created choreographies for non-traditional viewing and set up experiments to find out more about how to interact with the spectators.
Her choreographies have been presented at venues and festivals in the Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden. She is on the teaching staff for the Preparatory course of the National Ballet Academy and the Dance Teacher's programme of the Theaterschool Amsterdam.
