I am deeply saddened to hear about Sandra's passing. May she rest in peace.

I met Mrs Nicholson while studying ballet at The Quine Dance Centre in Belleville Ontario in 1985. . I always loved her classes and looked forward to her challenging ballet barre. She was always kind yet strong, gave so much to us young dancers, I will always remember her and be thankful that I had a chance to study with her.

My sincere condolences to her family and closest friends.

Sandy and I were in the same clas at NBS.
It is always so sad to have some you grew up with pass on.
I wish I had found out about this earlier, I would have attended.
Remember the good times and celebrate her life,
may her fire burn long and bright.

I was one of Mrs. Nicholson's students at the Quinte Dance Center. I remember enjoying her classes, even thought they were technically tough. But more than that, I remember conversations with her outside of class, and how she really showed interest in us and cared a lot. She was so kind and supportive. I am so happy I had her as a teacher, and will always remember her with a smile. Rest in peace Mrs Nicholson. Thank you for all you did.

I am so deeply saddened by this news, Ms Nicholson was much more than one of my favorite dance teachers at Quinte. We lived two streets from each other and she would regularly drive me home and I babysat her children quite often. I have often reflected on the talks we would have throughout the years. She help guide me thru dance and thru life at a very important time in my life, my best to her children and family, may you find comfort in knowing how many lives she touched and how much she was loved.
