Our brand new, full-time training program had a great start in the Fall of 2017.  We moved to our new campus with a custom built training space, and expanded the professional program to meet the needs of the evolving circus market to ensure our graduates are ready for the global stage.


NECCA is committed to developing exceptional and innovative circus artists.  Students are provided with the curriculum, classes, techniques, coaching and facilities they need to succeed. Chances are you already know performers or coaches who have graduated our professional programs.  Now you can take part in our expanded program to take your passion to the next level!


We will begin accepting applications for the 2018/2019 school year on Monday November 27.  Applications are due by January 15 for auditions March 10 & 11. 


The program is $9,950 per year.  Payments are made in several portions through the year.
