Circus in Vermont: Big Top Skills


Tuesday, February 26, 2013

The New England Center for Circus Arts teaches hard-to-come-by skills, things like flying via trapeze. This weekend, the Center offers a major display of those skills as students, instructors and guests present trapeze, aerial silk, partner balancing, juggling, and comedy acts.

Students from NECCA have gone on to run away with the circus, but several return for the show, including Marshall Jarreau, Morgan Oldham, Roger May and Ellen Waylonis-May.

The event is a fundraiser, and proceeds will help students who might not otherwise get to experience such learning, including children from Inspire for Autism, foster children from Northeastern Family Institute, kids from Brattleboro Housing developments, cancer survivors and their families, and kids from the Brattleboro Boys and Girls Club.

March 2, 7:30 p.m.; March 3, 1 p.m., $10-$50, Latchis Theater, 50 Main St., Brattleboro, www.necenterforcircusarts.org, (802) 254-9780.
