The Academy of the Arts is so thankful to have Nicole on staff and part of our AOTA family!
Nicole Khon began working at the Academy of the Arts in 2012. She accepted the role as the Academy of the Arts Acro Program Director in 2015.
Nicole is formally trained in gymnastics – training and coaching for 15 years. She also has received training in dance and cheer. Nicole graduated from Spring Arbor University majoring in Exercise Science. She continued her education at Jackson College to become a registered Cardiac Sonographer. In addition to directing the AOTA Acro program Nicole works in Lansing as a ultrasound specialist.
In 2015 Nicole taught the first Acro classes offered at the Academy of the Arts. Since that time she has built a strong program for our dancers that continues to grow in number and technical level. Her extensive gymnastics background brings a great deal of technical know-how and safe practice to AOTA’s Acro program.
Nicole resides in Jackson, MI with her husband, Jason and three children, Owen, Chloe and Olivia who have all danced at AOTA!
