JESS HILL

Jess Hill comes from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, where she discovered her love for climbing on things. She moved to Vermont in 2014 to attend the NECCA Professional Training Programs. She enjoys teaching people of all ages, and especially loves Corde Lisse and static Trapeze. Besides circus, she enjoys baking, farming and porch sitting.

“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.”

Julia L.NECCA parent

“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.”
