About Our Studio

Trinity Dance Prosser had its beginnings in various locations around town, beginning in 1999. In 2003, the studio location officially opened in an upstairs space in the Historic Mercer Building. The studio has been in its current location since 2006.

Trinity Dance Prosser offers quality dance education in a fun and healthy atmosphere. The focus is on helping students grow as humans AND dancers. We want to spread joy through our classes and performances! Trinity Dance Prosser puts on two large productions every year. In December, we present The Nutcracker or another holiday show, and in June, all of our classes are showcased in our Spring Recital.



Nicole Moscou
Studio owner, ballet director / instructor

Miss Nicole was trained in ballet throughout her childhood, at various studios throughout the Northwest. At sixteen, she began teaching pre-school ballet for a few families, and this eventually grew into the start of Trinity Dance Prosser. Nicole has continued her own dance education, and believes that we are never done learning and growing! She loves working with children, dancing with them, and making magical experiences for them. She has trained dancers who have gone on to dance in college and in performing companies, who have become teachers themselves, but most importantly, there are hundreds of now-grown kids who have happy memories, lifelong friendships, and helpful life skills that they gained through their time in dance class. 
Nicole married Micah in 2006, and they have four children: Eden, Israel, Anna, and Asher. 


Shelly Best
Tap Instructor

Shelly started taking ballet and tap lessons at four years old. She studied for several years under Meredith Sandoz of Meredith’s School of Dance. She went on to become Meredith’s assistant and dance teacher for twenty years, teaching students ages 4-18. She then paused in teaching dance in order to continue her education. She graduated from Washington State University with a BA in History and a Minor in Humanities in 2016. She has been longing to return to teaching dance, and is excited to meet new students at Trinity Dance Prosser!

Victoria Mendoza
Tumbling / Twinkle Star Classes

Victoria began her journey in dance, gymnastics and theatre arts at the age of 4, eventually becoming a long-standing member of 3 schools simultaneously during her childhood and teen years. Leaving her home town in the UK at 18, Victoria moved to the USA to further her education. She later met her husband and they relocated to Prosser with their four children. With her experience as a gymnastics coach, Victoria is happy to help students grow through dance and tumbling!

Kadence Nieman
Ballet / Twinkle Star instructor

Kadence began dancing at the age of twelve through Familaris Fine Arts, and quickly found that she enjoyed not only dancing, but sharing dance with children. She has been an instructor's assistant since day one, and has been teaching on her own for the past three years. In addition to teaching in Prosser, Kadence leads all of the classes at Trinity Dance Benton City.


Lindsay Mackey
Ballet instructor

Lindsay discovered her love for dance at three years old in a tap/jazz combo class. Throughout her childhood in California, she continued her dance studies across a spectrum of styles including ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary and clogging. She competed with her high school dance team where there was an emphasis on student choreography. While earning her degree at UC San Diego, she narrowed her focus on ballet and contemporary. In 2018, she conducted a kids jazz/hip-hop summer program at Prosser Family Fitness and has been excited
to be teaching ever since.
