I am Nikki Martensen, an anthropologist and dancer living in Orange County, California. I love to learn about people and use the skills I have learned as an applied anthropologist to help others reach their goals.

I started this blog to share my reflections on my own experiences as a dance student and teacher, as well as some anthropological perspectives for dance businesses and entrepreneurs.

This blog is just the start! There’s a growing world of digital dancers out there, and I’d love to meet you! You can find me here:
