Nick Lazzarini was the very first winner of the Fox reality show “So You Think You Can Dance.” He has been dancing since age four and began teaching and choreographing at the age of 14.

Extensivingly trained in jazz, lyrical, Hip-Hop, ballet and modern dance styles, he toured Europe with the RAW dance company, which was founded by choreographer Mia Michaels.

Nick has graced the cover of Dance Spirit magazine twice and also competed as part of a dance group called Hot Under The Collar, appearing on CBS's Star Search remake and on Dancing with the Stars in a performance presented by Macy’s Stars of Dance choreographed by Dee Caspary and Marty Kudelka. He was also featured in the Tezoro instructional dance VIdeo "Progressions with Mandy Moore."
