Meet the owner

Nicole Van Sickler

Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, Nicole Van Sickler turned her childhood passions of dance and fashion into a career. Today, she is living her dream as the owner of Memorial Dance Center and Memorial Dancewear. Nicole strives to offer ladies’ dance and activewear for every stage of life. Whether you have a tiny ballerina excited to purchase her first pair of ballet shoes, a high school dancer preparing for college auditions, or you’re a mom looking for athleisure to withstand the demands of daily life, Memorial Dancewear is proud to offer the essentials, unique pieces, and everything in between to the women of Houston.


Shortly after graduating from Florida State University, Nicole packed up and headed for Texas. Seven amazing years later, she met and married her husband Greg and bought two businesses. Together, with their beloved pup, Etta, they are now forever Houstonians. When she’s not dancing, Nicole can be found cheering on the Astros, diving into a good book, or trying new recipes in the kitchen. She has a knack for baking, and her homemade Christmas cookies are AMAZING!
