Nadine Azoulay began dancing when she was 3 ½ years old.  Born in Virginia, she received her early dance training at: the School of Dance in Ottawa, Ontario; the Royal Netherlands Conservatory in The Hague; The Rotterdam Contemporary School for Dance; and the Washington School of Ballet’s Release Time Program.  She performed in multiple productions with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and the Washington Ballet.

After finishing high school, Nadine earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and Choreography from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).  While there, she appeared in Dance Now shows, “Move” by Chris Burnside, the Student Concert as a soloist, and multiple Salon's.  During her time in Virginia, Nadine also became a company member of the Latin Ballet of Virginia.  She danced in numerous works, including Carnaval and Legend of the Poinsettia.  As a rising college senior, Nadine studied at the Accademia Dell’Arte's summer program in Tuscany, Italy.

Nadine's solo creation, “Barre,” was featured in VCU's En Route and solo “Among Debris” was shown at BalaSole Dance Company's Showcase at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City.  She next embarked on two of her own choreography projects, “Harvest,” and “Escaping Alcatraz,” consecutively, for National Choreography Month (NACHMO).  “Harvest” was presented at the Mark Morris Dance Center and at The Wired Arts Festival. 

Since graduating from VCU, Nadine has also performed with several noted professional companies.  She is a founding member of Intersections Dance Collective in New York City.  She danced in its Moving Forward show at the Judson Memorial Church in May 2015.  Additionally, Nadine is The Pink Tutu Ballet's rehearsal director in New York City.  In 2015, she was its Snow Queen in The Nutcracker.  She danced for the Jillian Davis Dance Project at Princeton University's Up and Coming Choreographers’ Competition.  She has performed in the annual New York City Dance Parade for five consecutive years.  Nadine is excited to be with ChoreoNova® now and participating in its innovative projects.
