acrobatic contortion Flexibility Stretch

Already as a 3-year-old, Nicole’s talent was nurtured in the former GDR, and as a schoolchild she began her athletic career in rhythmic gymnastics at the Children’s and Youth Sports School in Leipzig. At the age of 14, she started her training as an artist at the State School of Artistry in Berlin. She performed for 20 years with her contortion show in vaudeville theaters such as GOP and Friedrichsbau and for companies such as Audi, Mercedes, Porsche among others in China, Taiwan and Monaco and was seen on ARD, ZDF and other television shows.

Early on, Nicole began teaching in addition to her artistry. For almost 20 years she has been training children and adults, beginners as well as professionals, and passes on her experience with enthusiasm.
