Circus arts gears up for fall classes to start up
BRATTLEBORO- The New England Center for Circus Arts is an internationally recognized circus school known for innovative teaching, coaches at the top of their field, a welcoming and inclusive community, and dedication to providing training that’s catered to each individual.
NECCA offers a mix of levels in a variety of circus disciplines - appropriate for everyone from the absolute beginner to the professional looking to add to their skills.
Students age 1 ½ to 102 can develop a regular practice with a group of people who are at a similar level and a coach who can help keep track of progress, reach goals, and make new ones. Participants don’t need to be part of a circus family to try their hand at trapeze, wire, juggling, acrobatics, aerial silks, partner balancing, pole, German wheel, trampoline, and more. And thanks to NECCA’s custom-built trapezium with mats, safety lines, foam pit, net, and state-of-the-art rigging, it doesn’t have to feel death-defying.
New classes for the fall include a teen homeschool class, clowning, and adult performance troupe alongside traditional favorites including an early morning fitness class with low trapezes, novice stretching, tots and youth classes, and weekly juggle jams. Several NECCA coaches have expertise in working with students with unique learning styles (including autism and ADHD) and physical considerations (including hypermobility, spinal cord injury, and limb differences), and inquiry is welcome as to how programming can suit their needs. NECCA also offers payment plans and scholarships.
NECCA’s open house is Saturday, August 31, from 1 to 3 pm. The building will be open for visitors of all ages to try out juggling, trapeze, wire, and trampoline.
