He was promoted soloist in 1988. He studied in both Paris and New York. His teachers include Kronstam, Kehlet, Ravol, and Bjornsson. Nikolaj's technique was already well known, when in 1986 he was awarded the Silver Medal in the Paris Ballet Competition, as well as the French Critics Prize. Whilst at the Royal Danish Ballet he created the role of Struensee in Caroline Mathilde (1991). He joined New York City Ballet in July 1992 as a principal dancer.

His performance with the Royal Danish Ballet as James in Bournonville's La Sylphide has been released to DVD. A powerful dancer whose height did not compromise his swiftness, he not only excelled in the Bournonville repertory but also in neoclassical ballets and in dramatic rôles like Onegin.
