BB JUNIORS INSTRUCTOR

Nick Delgado

NICK DELGADO

Originally a Pacific Northwest native from Hood River, Oregon, Nick moved to San Diego in the fall of 2009. Despite only discovering his passion for the movement arts during his time in college, Nick has wasted little time in immersing himself in the Southern California dance scene, frequently attending classes and workshops while training in styles such as Hip Hop, House, and Popping.

Nick started his dance training as a scholarship dancer in 2012 at Culture Shock Dance Center, where he eventually became a part of the studio’s dance troupe. Since then, he has danced and trained at studios all around Southern California, with teams such as Tha Most, and Major League Crew. He has also found opportunities to train abroad in Germany and Australia. Nick has taught youth classes for 5 years at Inspired Movement Dance and Performing Arts.

He is super excited to introduce a unique dance experience to the Juniors that revolves around music and dance foundation while mixing in a fine balance of creativity and athleticism. Each day, the goal will be to strive to have fun, cultivate a sense of community amongst the participants, and grow into the best people possible.

KAYLAR PREITE

Kaylar Preite is a San Diego native who has been dancing for over 18 years and has trained in various styles including jazz, tap, ballet, and modern. However, her passion for hip-hop has taken over her dance career. She was a member and a director of the junior team Future Shock San Diego, was a member of San Diego’s adult competition team, 220, is currently a member of Beyond Babel season 3, and has been teaching at various dance studios and schools throughout the county. While continuing to train and learn as a dancer, Kaylar has been working on her path as a choreographer as well. But, she is a performer at heart and will continue to share and hopefully inspire others throughout her dance career.
