Ben found his way to circus at the age of 22 during his last year studying Nutrition and Fitness at the University of Dayton in Ohio. Having spent the last 12 years of his life singing and performing in musical theatre in his free time, he wanted to find a way to combine his passions for performing and physical movement. Circus became that way. After university, Ben began his circus training at the New England Center for Circus Arts (NECCA) in Brattleboro, VT, where he spent two years focusing on Chinese pole and trio acrobatics. Ben went on to continue his circus education at L’École de cirque de Québec (ECQ) in Quebec City. Ben graduated from ECQ in June 2019, specializing in Aerial Straps and minoring in Tramp wall.
