Nicki Miller Nicki Miller moved to New York to be an actor and director, and was quickly compelled to integrate the majesty of aerial into her artistic pursuits in the city. Her obsession with aerial was initially sparked in London in 2005, where she was exposed to integrated visual theatre that combined acrobatics, aerial and text. After graduating Syracuse University with a degree in Acting, Nicki discovered New York City's aerial community. In 2008 she began training silks and rope at Sky Box, and became manager of the program from 2010-2011, during which time she also produced the infamous Sky Box variety shows. Nicki's visionary approach to aerial as a theatrical medium has been featured through her rigging designs and choreography for multiple theatre and dance companies as well as years of performing throughout New York City as an actress and aerialist. She also teaches with the Muse in Brooklyn and trains with Circus Warehouse's professional intensive program. In 2011, she co-founded aerial theatre company Only Child with her artistic soulmate Kendall Rileigh to explore aerial acrobatics as a vocabulary for heightened storytelling.
Teaching style:
Nicki has always been known for her patience as a teacher and the supportive rapport she builds with students. Her class focuses on giving students a practical understanding of climbing, wrapping and moving with the fabric while prioritizing a fun and rigorous workout. This class is all about helping students understand the dynamic potential of their bodies and how to translate that safely and efficiently off the ground and into the air. Mindful and attentive, Nicki won't let you get away with being lazy, but won't beat on you if you don't figure things out on your first try; she is the first to admit she didn't successfully climb off the floor in her first aerial class! Nicki is also an NASM certified personal trainer, and brings her background from private coaching to help students troubleshoot their own learning curves and physical blocks: just because you think something is impossible doesn't mean it's impossible.
