The excitement started when Nicole was crowned Miss Earth Talent 2010 after beating 17 final contestants in the Talent Round.

Nicole learned Belly Dancing from our very own Veronica while preparing for the Talent Round of Miss Earth 2010 pageant. And the better part of the news is that Veve not only taught her the technique of belly dance but also choreographed the entire sequence for the Talent Round by mixing 'belly moves' with Indian classical dance. The jury was not only impressed with Nicole's skills but also the whole idea and concept.

Nicole made India proud by winning the 2010 Miss Earth Crown. Talking about Nicole, Miss India World 2010 - Manasvi Mamgai said, " I am very happy for her. This is the only title India has won this year, so it's great!" Apparently, Manasvi Mamgai has also been learning belly dancing from Veve Dance.

We wish both of them all the luck!
