Gustavo Nicola: Gustavo's passion is in Latin Dance.   He started his dance education with a group called Grupo del Sur. Gustavo's dedication to the art form had him dancing in a professional dance group after only 2 years. During his time dancing in Argentina, Gustavo performed for numerous nationally recognized artists. It wasn't long before Gustavo decided to open his own dance studio in Argentina. His studio was an immediate success and the talk of the town for 2 years. Gustavo was then presented with the opportunity to travel to Las Vegas and compete in the World Salsa Championship which aired on ESPN. Gustavo wanted to continue his experience in dance around the world and traveled to Mexico where he was offered work as a professional dancer and choreographer for 7 years. In 2014 Gustavo opened the doors to Milwaukee’s premier Latin dance studio, Gustavo Krystal Dance.

Krystal Nicola: Krystal´s desire to dance started at the young age of two. Growing up as a young dancer in the United states she studied tap, ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop, afro and ballroom.  She competed in countless competitions and studied from well-known choreographers such as Mia Michaels and Dee Caspery. In college she studied musical theater to improving her understanding of music and theatre as a whole. In 2006 she moved to Mexico where she began her professional career as a dancer and choreographer. She spent most of her time in Mexico working for the internationally recognized company Nuevo Milenio Balet where she furthered her education in Latin dance. Her countless hours on stage helped Krystal polish her stage presence and better her technique. In January 2013, Krystal moved to the United States to pursue her lifetime dream of owning and running her own dance studio. With over 30 years of dance experience, Krystal enjoys sharing her experiences and techniques with her students.
