The New England Center for Circus Arts presents its eighth annual Circus Spectacular this weekend. For this very special, once-a-year fundraising event, New England Center for Circus Arts invites professional performers from around the world to donate their talents to raise money for Circus in the Neighborhood, NECCA’s scholarship and outreach programming.
NECCA’s Circus Spectacular brings together dazzling performers from around the globe in a family-friendly event to benefit the New England Center for Circus Arts. High flying aerialists, acrobats, and jugglers will bring laughter and awe to the Latchis Theater stage for two shows only.
Circus in the Neighborhood offers diverse custom programming ranging from after-school programs and specialized instruction for special needs youth to workshops for cancer survivors and off-site performances in area group homes and rehabilitation centers.
All proceeds from this annual event support outreach programming by the New England Center for Circus Arts. NECCA offers free and discounted programming with many collaborators for at-risk youth, including Brattleboro housing developments, Boys & Girls Club, the Retreat and Kurn Hattin Homes. Approximately one in six NECCA students receive some form of tuition assistance to the many programs that range from physical literacy for youth to professional training for adults.
There will be two show, on March 3, at 7:30 pm, and March 4, at 1 pm, at the Latchis Theater.
