Nicky Manego

Dance Adjudicator


Nicky has been involved in the Performing Arts Industry for many years
as a student, performer, teacher, choreographer, event manager and adjudicator.

As a performer, Nicky toured Australia and internationally in many shows as a
dancer/singer and model. Her list of credits is expansive however, highlights include The Jackie Love Show, The Magic Millions Gala (New Zealand & Kentucky, USA), Royal Bicentennial Concert (Sydney), Queensland Day Concert (World Expo), the musicals Evita (Sydney) and Swing (Barcelona), the Australian Film Industry Awards and numerous Corporate Events and television show appearances.

Nicky trained through the RAD and CSTD Syllabi and also studied at ‘The Ross Coleman Performing Arts Studios’ (Sydney) and ‘Pineapple Dance Studios’
(London). Years spent studying, performing and perfecting her craft has ensured proficiency in all dance styles and vocals.

As a teacher/choreographer, Nicky has had many years of experience
both teaching and mentoring students of all ages in a variety of dance genres in private Dance Studios and Educational Schools. She has created choreographic pieces for performance teams, duos, trios and solos, National Sports Acrobatics Teams, Fashion and Hair Shows. She has all choreographed small and massed production items for the ‘Creative Generation State Schools on Stage Spectacular’.

As a performing arts adjudicator, Nicky believes that she is priviledged to witness first-hand, the ever-evolving art of Dance and Performance and relishes the opportunity to inspire and encourage young performers to reach their full potential and shine in their own unique way.

Nicky’s favourite Quote by Mikhail Baryshnikov is one that she has believed in and shared with young performers for many years:
“I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to dance better than myself.”
