Please welcome Special guest teacher Nicolea Pettis to this year's National Samba Queen & King Competition
Please welcome! Special guest! Rainha Do Samba USA 2015 I (Queen of Samba USA) - Nicolea Pettis to this year's 2018 National Samba Queen and King Competition! We are excited to have her join us as special guest teacher / workshop instructor.
Nicolea Pettis found her love for perfoming early in life. At the age of 6 she performed with the Orange County Black Actors Theater Kids Division. She was the youngest member of the group. A quiet child by nature, she came to life on stage and surprised everyone. That is when, as the saying goes, "A Star Was Born."
Nicolea was crowned Samba Queen USA 2015 in October 2015 at the national Samba King and Queen competition in Arizona. Nicolea is currently a dancer in the highly acclaimed Raiz Brazil Dance Company under the direction of Jonia McClenney. Nicolea continues to perfect her craft. She loves to perform and share the joy of Samba!
