MEET NOLAN PADILLA
Known as one of the hottest up and coming dancer/choreographers in the industry, Nolan began his professional dance career at the young age of 18. Although dancing had been at the forefront of his whole life, it would be difficult for him to train in hip-hop until he moved from the small town of Cheyenne, WY. to Denver, CO. While living and dancing in Los Angeles, Nolan has learned the ins and outs of the industry, and still continues to grow as an artist. Working with the likes of J.C. Chasez to Jennifer Lopez and even staring in a reality show on M.T.V.'s "Dancelife", make his performance experience top notch.
His ability to teach and his knowledge of Hip-hop Dance makes class time a very educational and pleasant experience. Nolan hopes to continue his career as a Dancer and hopes to branch off into other aspects of the entertainment industry.
Growing up in such small town as Cheyenne, WY, Nolan found a love for Hip-Hop music and dance at very young age. Not having anyone to teach him, he took it upon himself to learn how to dance. He enjoyed watching all the videos from Janet, Boys 2 Men, T.L.C., and Usher. He learned how to mimic the artist he saw on the television. Once in High School the family packed up and moved to Denver CO., where Nolan began his training in an actual studio, at the great Cleo Parker and Robinson studio in downtown Denver. In Colorado Nolan got the technical training in Hip-Hop from Larry Southall and Kenny Jimenez. Through the guidance of these instructors this makes Nolan a stand out in old school forms of Hip-Hop. Caught with the bug of performing and wondering what could possibly happen Nolan took a risk and moved to Hollywood CA., to pursue a career in the dance industry.
Once in Los Angeles, Nolan wasted no time in chasing his dream. Booking his first major tour the following summer on the American Idol's live tour Nolan knew he had made the right decision. Soon after working with choreographers from the likes of Brian Friedman, Hi-Hat, Rich &Tone, Kristin Denehey, Marty Kudelka, Shane Sparks, Rosero & Jamal his knowledge of performing is constantly being put to the test with astounding results. Nolan is represented by Clear Talent Group, one of the top dance agencies in Los Angeles. Nolan continues to live and love Hip-Hop, whether teaching classrooms of eager learners, a demonstration performance, performing in an arena or getting funky in front of the bathroom mirror, dancing is Nolan's first love.
Teaching to Nolan has recently become a very great outlet for Nolan's dance. "Passing on the knowledge that I have is a very exhilarating and exciting experience". Trying to get somebody in class to hear and feel the music while moving to the rhythm can be a great challenge. Nolan is one of the most patient and understanding instructors, with the knowledge of more than one style of hip-hop and his terminology he's able to break it down to the most novice student to a very advanced student. Being trained in Poppin', House, Jazz Funk, Hip-Hop, Folklorico, his style is quite versatile. His goal is to make each class experience a unique experience every time you step into his class.
