Aerial and circus arts, stretch/flexibility and conditioning

Video classes available during lockdown include stretching and conditioning without gym equipment. If you have a rigging point and aerial equipment in your home and would like a video lesson then this is also possible as long as you have a mat and I am able to assess your level beforehand. I also offer artistic advice to those creating an act. Post lockdown I have a space in Bristol where I can teach, or can travel to you if you have an aerial space we can use.

I am a Cirque du Soleil artist (OVO, solo silks and duo web / AXEL, vertical chain, bungee and aerial hoop) and have 22 years performing and teaching in the circus industry. I have written a teacher training course for aerial arts and hold a level 2 ETM qualification in fitness instructing.

Extra information

For stretching and conditioning classes a yoga mat is required. Yoga blocks are also useful for stretching if possible.

I have performed worldwide as a freelance aerial artist at events for the Royal families of the UK, UAE, Malaysia and Belgium; at high-scale corporate galas and launches (alongside such stars as Prince, Elton John, Seal and Katherine Jenkins); at festivals (Goodwood Festival of Speed, Glastonbury and the Henley Festival); on cruise ships (Costa Cruise Line); in traditional circuses (Circus Flora, Circus Smirkus, the Zoppe Family Circus) and theatrical circus shows (Pendulum Aerial Dance), as well as performing as a solo artist for Cirque Du Soleil (duo corde lisse and solo aerial silks, OVO Japan tour)

Student testimonials:
"A very generous and technically competent teacher, Nicole excels in her professionalism and dedication to the art of teaching" - Abby E, student

"Nicky has been invaluable to my professional aerial training. Learning first hand from a woman who has trained and performed in the best international schools and locations has meant learning about real aerial performance." - Alex H, student

"When I first started learning aerial I trained in the same space as Nicky and was in awe of her! It was an inspiration to watch her on the equipment and out of all of the training professionals I saw I was impressed with the clarity and elegance of her movement. As a ballet student for 13 years I have been trained to move with precision and to me, Nicky's standard of aerial was something to aim for. Having seen her level of performance, I was concerned she would not be able to simplify or breakdown the movement sufficiently for me, working with significantly less strength and flexibility. On the contrary the lessons I have had accelerated my level amazingly in just a few weeks, when leading up to a performance, while giving me a huge boost in confidence. Since then we are going back to basics to work on good technique, strength and flexibility on which to build bigger moves. Nicky is a fantastic, patient and encouraging teacher and has a genuine interest in her students as individuals. Performance wise she has a wealth of experience to draw from and was enthusiastic about my idea for a piece, helping me to develop my own style within it. Training wise she is motivating and energizing, also providing me with exercises to do between classes. I have thought on more than one occasion that I'm really glad I approached her for classes!" - Sophie S, student

*Intelligence workout* Body language is the oldest of all. Conquer it!
This class is a method I created to help people know their body, manipulate their movement, be more empathetic through knowing how the others feel and what their motives are through their body language. In the beginning, we focus on becoming friends with one's self and then learning what is best for us as a whole existence. It is not only a dance class. It's a door that needs to be opened in everyone's mind. The first language we learn is the body language.

Private lessons in mathematics, English and dance
Whether English, mathematics or dance, each course is personalized, depending on the needs and abilities of my student. The first lesson is always an assessment of the student level and the discussion of the main concentration points, particular problems, expectations etc. to benefit the most from the following course. For mathematics and English courses, I first explain the general concepts and the theory, after which we work together on the examples. Whenever possible, I try to give students a small homework assignment. As for the dance, the class starts with the warming up of the body, which depends on the personal predispositions of the pupil-one practices special steps, choreographs, improvises, stretches, etc. As a dancer, I am professionally doing contemporary dance but I mix different styles: I also dance hip-hop and breakdance, I train in ballet to always keep, I have experience in oriental dance , which interests me a lot: I am then at your disposal if it is the choice of style!

Meditation/Yoga/QiGong/Kung-Fu/Fitness for everyone
After 20 years of practice of a broad variety of sports, my daily practice now encompasses all these styles for a holistic approach of fitness and inner peace. It is applicable to any level, from beginners who want to discover the potential of their bodies to already sportive people who want to increase performance. During the practice, I emphasize mindfulness and sensations for students to learn how to listen to their bodies. If you want to focus on one style more than the others, don’t hesitate to tell me! I try as much as possible to work without any equipment, although a yoga mat would be useful. However, if you already have weights, ropes, or anything else, let’s make good use of them.
