From Nick’s colleagues, friends and students
“Nick has been a friend and colleague for many years. Since I first met him I’ve been impressed with his dancing and his integrity. He is one of the most fun and funniest dancers and dance coaches I’ve had the pleasure of being around. I have watched his success as a dancer and with his company LeNique. I am confident anyone would appreciate, enjoy, and value working with Nick.”
“Nick Kosovich is one of the most remarkable, generous and gracious partners I have ever come across. He leverages his extraordinary network of dedicated friends and followers ito achieve extraordinary results. Nick’s assistance to AdMeTech Foundation’s Dance for a Cure has resulted in the most successful, large-scale private fundraising program in prostate cancer in Massachusetts. This program, thanks to Nick, has become instrumental in creating new partnerships and greater national visibility for prostate cancer. In my view, Nick is able to create success with any project he touches. Faina Shtern, MD, President, AdMeTech Foundation (www.admetech.org).”
