Nick Harden started training in the circus arts while attending college at Illinois State University. After graduating with a major in physical education he put his degree in a box and joined the circus. He now lives in Seattle with his wife Wendy and infant son Felix. Together they have traveled the world with groups including Cirque Mechanics, Flynn Creek Circus, Zoppe Circus, and IMPulse Circus Collective. When not on stage or in the ring, he loves to teach and share his passion for the circus. He has taught with organizations across the United States, including SANCA in Seattle, Circus Harmony in St Louis, and Circus Smirkus in Vermont. Nick loves bicycles almost as much as he loves his family.
