Nicole was introduced to circus in March of 2012 when she attended an aerial tester class at a circus studio in the Boston area. She was immediately hooked and spent the next two and a half years training circus recreationally.
In July 2015 she was admitted into the Professional Preparatory Program at Esh Circus Arts in Somerville MA. The part time program focused on helping dedicated students develop their technical, choreographic, and performance skills. She remained in the program for over a year and a half, focusing on aerial rope, cyr wheel, aerial silks, Spanish web, and static trapeze.
In March 2017 Nicole was accepted into the PROTrack Mastery of Circus Arts and Performing Program at the New England Center for Circus Arts. It is located in Brattleboro Vermont and is the longest running professional training program for circus artists in the United States.
Nicole is currently completing her second year of the PROTrack program. Her focus disciplines include aerial rope and cyr wheel but she also trains a variety of other circus disciplines such as partner acrobatics, tumbling, hand balancing, and flexibility.
