Boot Camp Director, Core Faculty

From the age of two years old, Aimeé Hancock and her family knew she was built and impassioned for movement. She went through the gamut of physical theater, competitive gymnastics, contemporary dance and finally dropped into an exciting circus career. Beginning as a purely technical performer, Aimée finally found her wings through improvisation and theatrical expression. Aimée has taught acrobatics and aerials in five languages to people from all over the globe. It is a privilege and a joy to share her passion and guide others to reach new heights and touch deeper in to the hearts of audience members. Through the theatrical training learned from greats such as Philippe Decouflé and Daniele Finzi Pasca, Aimée brings a natural and liberating approach to performance as demonstrated in her tour with Cirque Eloize’s Rain.

“NECCA is an unbelievably fantastic resource that has given my daughter strength, confidence, agility, artistry, and a close family of like-minded souls. Not sure where she would have found her place if not for NECCA.”

“This [NECCA] is a good business plan. This creates jobs, economic development, opportunity, but most importantly, it changes kids’ lives.”

“The kids had a total blast. . .we really appreciate NECCA reaching out to us so that we can all work together to serve our kids better. They were so centered, and grounded, and ready to get back to academics when they came back to school – and that’s exactly what we had hoped for them!”

“I have not felt this beautiful since my surgery. Just as cancer teaches you that you can live through stresses you never imagined, this program teaches you that your body can fly and do things you never imagined.”
