Having a prior background in rugby league and strength sports, Nick has competed at National and International levels for powerlifting and strongman. He has always been interested in the strength and movement of the human body and when he started photographing dancers; particularly of the acrobatic genre, his interest peaked and he had to learn how to do it himself! Nick has since competed in group dance and acrobatic competitions, at a National level, and now teaches from the Canadian Acro Dance Syllabus, Acrobatique.

Nick is also the creator of Fit Nicks Fitness a program designed to strengthen and condition dancers specifically. Encore is a proud host to Nick’s program, students can enrol in this program as well as Nick’s timetabled classes.
