Community Acro Jam


This class is taught by:

Gracie Niswanger

Gracie leads Aerial and Pole Fitness, Aerial and Pole Choreography, Pole Tricks, assists with Kids programs, and trains and performs aerial, and acrobatics. She also teaches for MASCs accredited UM courses, Lifelong Learning Center, and Flagship. Being a Missoula native, Gracie grew up with the mountains and rivers as her playground. Her acrobatic journey began in 2010 when she discovered her love for yoga, as well as realized what the human body is capable of. It wasn’t long after that that she dove into the world of partner acrobatics. Fast forward to 2014, after obtaining numerous trainings and certifications, Gracie found her home at MASC Studio and Training agency, where she began sharing her love of AcroYoga with the community. Having an adult jungle gym at her finger tips, her focus was quickly drawn to the world of aerial acrobatics. 2015 marked the beginning of Gracie’s aerial training, and since then she has taught, trained and performed around the world, including both Nicaragua and Mexico. Gracie now teaches a wide variety of classes at MASC including pole, pole fitness, aerial choreography, aerial fitness, partner acrobatics and yoga.
