Nicole McCauley

Nicole is MASC's studio manager, aerial coach, and aerial program designer and artistic director of in house productions. From a young age Nicole has been fascinated with expression through movement and theater. Growing up she danced at a small studio and was involved in theater. In early 2013, Nicole discovered her love for aerial arts. Craving a skill that would take her to new heights and challenges, aerial has been satisfying choice. As a compliment to aerial coaching, Nicole practices and teaches barre, yoga and pilates, serving as a solid base of principles and techniques; derived from numerous rigorous teacher trainings from some of the nation's most renowned instructors and programs. In addition to these trainings, Nicole gives back to the Missoula community by participating in the local Yoga Behind Bars program 'Freedom Within,' and in MASC's partnership with the YWCA, Flagship, the Lifelong Learning Center, and the University of Montana. In 2017, Nicole created and authenticated Aerial Arts Fundamentals Curriculum and MASC Teacher Training, catapulting MASC as a company to a new realm of professionalism. Nicole weaves her profession with her art. Fueling inspiration with a consistent passion for augmenting her skills and qualifications, she performs with a style that is solely her own creation; she is truly unique and mesmerizing.
