Chase has been climbing on things practically since birth, including trees, buildings, and the catwalks of the various theaters where he acted and did tech throughout school. Discovering circus in college was a game-changer, and Chase dove into partner acrobatics, aerials, and fire arts.
Chase trained acrobatics and aerials at Emerald City Trapeze and the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts in Seattle until he moved to Boston in 2013. He began training at Esh shortly after and is a graduate of Esh’s Professional Preparatory Program, where he specialized in partner acrobatics and aerial silks. Chase is a member of the Boston Circus Guild and performs as one half of Duo Volante.
Over the years Chase has taught rock climbing, aerial silks, natural sciences, partner acrobatics, and theater. When he’s not at the circus, he teaches robots to understand human speech.
