Instructors

Instructors
Our teachers come from all over the world with diverse backgrounds coaching, performing and choreographing in circus as well as dance, gymnastics, stunts and theater. Our coaches include world champion jugglers, performers from Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Eloize, Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey, Cirka, Pilobolus and other troupes too numerous to mention. But they all have one thing in common that brought them to NECCA - they have a passion and ability to teach circus arts.

Important to NECCA and our teachers is that all classes & training focus on body awareness, self confidence & fun so whether the acrobat is a budding professional or recreational beginner they can learn life skills. We teach the heart first and the body second and teach that determination, hard work & team building can lead to healthier & happier bodies for every day life, as well as how to be a skillful artist & athlete.
