NEW ENGLAND CENTER FOR CIRCUS ARTS

New England Center for Circus Arts is an internationally recognized circus school known for outstanding physical and creative programming, innovative teaching, coaches at the top of their field, a welcoming and inclusive community, and dedication to providing training that’s catered to the individual. NECCA devises outreach programming for the community, offers 60+ community classes a week for anyone who wants to try, as well as training for the professional. 

For touring, the New England Center for Circus Arts presents the Circus Capstone Project, a culminating performance of aspiring circus professionals at the forefront of American Circus. For aspiring performers, NECCA’s 3 year ProTrack provides elite acrobatic and aerial training alongside movement and physical theater, instigating a deeper capacity for creativity within circus arts. In their final year, a small group of these accomplished students devise a show for touring, embracing innovation and daring at the intersection of circus, theater, and dance.
