TVP  is owned and operated by Nicole Manelas. Her studio owning  dreams were inspired when she began choreographing dances to Britney  Spears, and Christina Aguilera for her sister, cousin, and friends to  perform at slumber parties Nicole danced from age 3 through high school,  and then went on to dance in college. It has always been a dream of  hers to share this love and passion for dance with others.  She was on  the Endicott College Dance Team for two years and competed at UDA  Nationals at ESPN Worldwide sports arena twice. She also completed a  minor in dance taking courses in modern dance, jazz dance, choreography,  dance teaching methods, ballet, dance history, world dance cultures,  and more.  She performed in 4 dance ensemble shows and 2 student  choreography showcases during her college years.

In 2015, Nicole was one of 18 dancers selected out of a group of over  400 young women auditioning for a cheerleading position with the New  England Patriots.  She completed 4 seasons with the New England Patriots  cheerleaders and has been a line captain for 3 of those years.  As a  part of the Patriots Cheerleaders, she performed at all New England  Patriots home games and participated in numerous promotional appearances  and special events on behalf of the organization. She traveled to the  Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, Aruba and St. Maarten to pose for the  New England Patriots Cheerleaders Swimsuit Calendars as well as dance in  shows for the resort and hotel guests.  She was also one of 8 women to  be selected to travel to Mexico City to perform in 2017 for the Patriots  vs. Raiders game. Nicole had the privilege to perform at THREE Super  Bowls; LI, LII and LIII.  Two of her favorite moments in her life came  from cheering on the sidelines of Super Bowl LI & LIII.  Watching  the Patriots make history in Super Bowl LI  by coming back to win from  the largest deficit in Super Bowl history and also being the first Super  Bowl to go into overtime was indescribable.  She had danced in Red,  White, and Blue Confetti not once but twice! Those moments make her feel  extremely grateful to have dance bring her such wonderful life  experiences. It was through this professional dance position that she  also found her love for fitness.
