Alex Jackson

Senior Coach

Alex Jackson is an avowed bandanna enthusiast from Boston, Massachusetts. After earning degrees in Biology and Theater from UMass Amherst, his passion for rock climbing and being in the air led him to Esh Circus Arts, where he trained a variety of aerial disciplines for 4 years before attending the Professional Training program at the New England Center for Circus Arts. His first love is aerial rope, but he decided it just wasn’t painful enough and has focused his time at NECCA on straps and hand balancing. Alex regularly sneaks out of Brattleboro to perform with the members of Boston Circus Guild and teach at Esh Circus Arts.
