Nicolas Noel took his classes at the Paris Opera dance school where he studied classical and contemporary dance, jazz, mime, theatre and music. At age 18, he was hired in the Opera's Ballet where he would later become a "Coryphée". There, he got to work with Rudolph Noureev, Maurice Béjart, Angelin Prejlocaj, Carolyn Carlson, Jerome Robbins, Roland Petit and William Forsythe among others.
At age 23, he was awarded the "Rudolph Noureev" foundation prize at the International Competition of Paris.
As a choregraph, Nicolas Noel made up three ballets : "Q'Amouressence" in 1999, "Des Tours de Vie" in 2000 and "Hémisphères" in 2006.
He then left the Opera in 2008 and embraced a new carreer : one as ballet teatcher. With a State Diploma in his pocket, he taught at the St-Maur-des-Fossés regional Academy of Music and at the Centre du Marais.
Today, he gives daily classes at Elephant Paname, for professionals as well as dance amateurs.
In 2009, he choregraphed "Fusion" for his students who appeared at the Cirque d'Hiver.
Nicolas Noel's class is modelled on the one given at the Opera's dance school and on the Ballet's. The level, which is middle-advanced, requires the knowledge of all classical dance's vocabulary.
