Nelle has been dancing since she was 3 years old. With a background in tap, jazz, and ballet, she was not introduced to partner dancing until 2006. Balboa came into her life as the first predominant style of swing dancing she focused on. She found balboa to be the dance that fit due to its elegance and refined technique which complimented her dancing background. She stresses comfort and teamwork in the classroom and continually strives to pursue a constant goal of perpetual awesomeness through social and competitive dancing. She currently resides in Philadelphia where she teaches in hopes of spreading her love of balboa.

Together Adam and Nelle have competed and won competitions in balboa throughout the United States since beginning to compete together in 2006. Some of these competitions include:

  • 5th at All Balboa Weekend 2010
  • Finalists for the International Balboa Cup at Balboa Rendezvous ?10
  • Runners up of the Open Balboa Comp at EBC '10
  • 1st place- Balboa Jack and Jill ILHC 2009
  • Finalist - Pro Balboa at All Balboa Weekend 2009
  • 1st Place - Strictly Balboa at Rocky Mountain Balboa 2009
  • 1st Place - Strictly Balboa at the Int'l Lindy Hop Championships 2008
