Owner: Lance Nielsen

Lance has over 14 years experience as a professional acrobat working for companies such as Franco Dragone Entertainment, Sea World San Diego and Chimelong International Circus. He has had the opportunity to travel throughout the United States, Asia and Europe as a high diver, acrobat & aerialist. He received training in Russian swing, diving and duo aerial from coaches from Cirque du Soleil and Franco Dragone. He received training and certification in circus arts instruction and rigging from the Ecole Nationale de Cirque in Montreal.

Lance's interest in acrobatics began as a kid from watching Jackie Chan movies and jumping on the backyard trampoline. He took his trampoline skills to the diving board, which opened the door for performing in high diving shows through out the country. Locally, he performed in the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, the Utah Blaze stunt shows, Utah Jazz dunk shows and the Mayan Adventure Restaurant. He performs with Aerial Assault Entertainment.  He was a collegiate cheerleader and a starting lacrosse player at the University of Utah, and Westminster College.

We are always looking for experienced coaches & upbeat staff to join our team. Please send resumes to: info@aerobaticsgym.com
