Zeb Galipeau has been performing since the early age of 8. After being talked into playing multiple roles in school productions he decided two things- that performing was inevitable, and that it might actually be enjoyable. It was as this point that he attended and graduated NECCA’s 2010 Professional Performance Training Program, with a major in German Wheel and a minor Partner Acrobatics. He can occasionally be witnessed juggling or meddling in magical tomfoolery on the side, and is a certified German Wheel instructor.

“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.”
