Trapeze, acrobatics, tumbling and more will be presented by youth age 7 to 18. Students in the program train with elite coaches to prepare for a path in circus training through more demanding skills, rigorous strength and flexibility training, and act creation.

NECCA is delighted to announce that Jeffrey M. Lewis has generously donated a stunning collection of 20 framed black and white photographs of NECCA graduates and students in action. The photos will be for sale throughout the exhibit, which runs from April 7 to June 6, at Vermont Artisan Designs, Main Street. Proceeds will benefit NECCA’s new building fund.
This year NECCA will move into its own custom-designed “trapezium building” in Brattleboro, the newest custom-designed circus arts trapezium in the country. Plans are to be in the new building at 10 Town Crier Drive by July 2017. The trapezium will allow year-round, indoor flying trapeze training, as well as fabric/silk, juggling, contortion, unicycle, partner acrobatics, German wheel, teeterboard, and more.
Lewis has been photographing NECCA performers and performances for the last five years. He has also photographed Southern Vermont dance festivals, SOBO studio, and African dance. In addition to his 45 years of honing his photography skills, Lewis has managed careers from ministry to economic development and is now in quasi-retirement.
