Ariele Ebacher came to circus from the worlds of dance and theatre at age 21. She learned the art of wire dancing while on tour with Circus Smirkus, and then moved to Chicago to work for The Midnight Circus. She has traveled the world working in traditional, theatrical, and contemporary circus. Some of the companies she has worked for include Midnight Circus, The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, Zoppe Circus, NoFit State Circus, Circus Flora, Flynn Creek Circus, Cirque Mechanics, and most recently Big Apple Circus. In addition to her work as a performing circus artist, Ariele has coached tightwire and other circus skills in circus schools around the country. She has coached both the camp and tour at Circus Smirkus. In Chicago she taught young people at Circesteem and adults at Aloft Circus Arts. She has also taught workshops at the San Francisco Circus Center, Madison Circus Guild, and here at NECCA. She takes great pleasure in sharing her knowledge , experience, and passion for tightwire with others.

“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.”

Peter ShumlinVermont Governor

“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.”
