Members Only is a drop-in training option for intermediate to professional-level circus artists looking for practice time. Following an initial orientation, you can check the calendar for available times and equipment. Sign in and train away!
Intermediate to advanced students and professional guests can inquire about participation. Residency and ProTrack students are automatically eligible. Advanced Youth Troupe students may receive permission based on instructor and parent/guardian permission.
To sign up please email Finn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a mandatory $30 orientation.
Members Only costs $10/day or $70/month for unlimited training during Members Only times. Members Only is free for Residency students.
- Before signing up for Members Only, make sure you have completed a Members Only orientation. If you have not, you can pay for one here and schedule one by emailing email@example.com.
- Our Members Only training times are drop in times and training locations are first come first serve. Please pay ahead of time by clicking “drop in” under the Members Only Daily section.
- If you are interested in purchasing a monthly Members Only package you can email us to purchase one. This gives you access to unlimited Members Only and Open Studio training times for that month.
Many of our advanced and professional students need a support person in order to practice their craft. For example, a puller for an aerial act on our butterfly lift or our mechanical advantage lines, a safety line holder for swinging trapeze, or someone to hand them props during a run through of an act.
If you would like to add Training Support, this is available for 50% off the private lesson fee ($40/1 hour).
NOTE: this does not include instruction. This can be scheduled by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: If you have a private lesson scheduled, you are welcome to arrive 30 minutes early and stay 30 minutes late for physical preparation (if the building is open) without needing to pay for Members Only training time. If you wish to stay longer, your private lesson coach can give you permission for a daily membership, but only the Program Director can give permission for monthly memberships or ongoing daily memberships.
This calendar is updated weekly and is subject to change at any time.
Open Studio is a great opportunity for students to practice what they are learning in classes. It is available to any NECCA student currently enrolled in Advanced Youth Troupe, adult classes, or private lessons. Open Studio is free as a make-up for missed session classes (maximum two per session). No appointment is necessary—just drop in and the host will help you set up your training area.
No orientation is required for open training.
The cost of open training is $10/day or free for current adult session class students to make up missed classes (maximum two per session). Free for Residency and ProTrack students.
Tuesdays: 7 – 9 pm (Cotton Mill)
Thursdays: 730-9 pm (Trapezium)
Open Studio follows our session class schedule. When session classes are on break Open Studio will not be offered.
Any members only or open studio participants must follow all of NECCA’s COVID-19 safety policies in addition to our regular studio safety policies. This requires each participant to be willing and able to train while wearing a face mask and be socially distancing in their lives outside of NECCA.
