Handbalancing workshop with Sierra Nicholls! Want to learn how to do a handstand? Improve the inversion skills you already have or start doing one arm handstand progressions? Sierra Nicholls is returning to Maine and wants to help you learn! We will focus on headstands, handstand drills, and technique for longevity and success. Register for either both days ($60) or just one ($30). Sierra Rhoades Nicholls grew up in Missoula, MT and was a part of Roots Acro Sports Center (home of Bitterroot Gymnastics) from 2007 - 2016. After graduating from Hellgate High School in 2016, Sierra moved to Maine where she joined the Professional Level Training Program of the Maine Circus Academy to pursue her dream of being in the circus. Sierra trained intensively as a handstand apprentice under former Cirque du Soleil artist, Cory Tabino as well as an all-around student of circus at MCA from August 2016 - March 2018. During her time on the East Coast, Sierra performed professionally for such companies as the Fred Garbo Inflatable Theater Company, Circus Maine, Otherworld Circus, L.L. Bean, and Liberty Mutual to name just a few. Since then, she has brought her years of dedication and hard work on stage from New York to Ohio in the varying disciplines of: hand-balancing, trampoline, tramp-wall, chinese pole, and partner acrobatics. She spent this spring training in Europe and is lucky enough to back in Maine for a few weeks this August 2018!
