Acoatzin Torres

Founder Acoatzin Torres was a well-known local instructor and performer of aerial arts. He trained, taught and performed locally and across the United States.  Much of his formal training was at the New England Center for Circus Arts (NECCA) in Brattleboro, Vermont, a world-renowned venue for circus art instruction and instructor certification.  His expertise extended to aerial fabric, lyra, trapeze, sling, and rope. His unsurpassed dedication to his craft and to his students shone through in every class he taught.

Prior to discovering his love for the circus arts, Acoatzin was a performer and teacher of multiple styles of dance, most notably Mexican Folk Dance, which he studied from the age of 5.  Prior to moving to the U.S., Acoatzin danced professionally in his home country of Mexico, where he also studied fashion design.

Tragically, Acoatzin’s life was cut short on October 23, 2021, shortly before his 41st birthday.  We miss him every day.
