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.

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

Eleonora
SEMI-PRIVATE ORIENTAL DANCE CLASSES - Geneva and the Holy Land
Oriental dance is a dance of Egyptian origin, which includes many styles. Originally, it was a spontaneous and improvised dance, but today it is taught academically all over the world. It is traditionally practiced by women, who express by this art their femininity, their vitality, but also their feelings, joys and sorrows. In general, this dance is characterized by the dissociation of the parts of the body (isolations) that can move independently of one another. Oriental dance is as good with jerky rhythms as slow and fluid. Bellydance is not limited to movements of the pelvis: it solicits flexibility and tonicity of the bust, shoulders, arms, hands, pelvis and belly. It helps tone the thighs, relax the joints, develop the abdominals and maintain the back. Most of the work resides in the muscular contraction, this dance can be practiced at any age, in the respect of the limits of each dancer or dancer. The course begins with a joint and muscle warm-up, followed by technical work. The basic movements are then integrated into sequences that allow you to move in space and experience the pleasure of dancing, before ending with a session of relaxation.
