Seaside Circus was founded in 2016 to bring the dynamic and captivating world of aerial arts to Cape Ann, Massachusetts.
This a place where everyone is welcome. And where technique and artistry meet, offering individualized professional training for curious aerialists of all ages and experience levels - primarily in aerial silks and static trapeze. Founder, Eileen Little’s background in theater and circus gives her school a unique artistic perspective - encouraging students to not only become proficient in skills, but (for those who are interested) also in musicality and theatricality. Seaside Circus is committed to helping students become true storytellers in the air.
In addition to her work with Seaside Circus, Eileen is also a proud member of Actor’s Equity Association, and co-artistic director and co-founder of Fight or Flight, an aerial theater company based in NYC. She performs regularly in the New England area, and is a member of Girls on Trapeze and the Boston Circus Guild. Eileen teaches aerial workshops and classes across the US and (in conjunction with Fight or Flight) tailors aerial programs to school curricula for education and outreach. She is a graduate of the New England Center for Circus Arts in Brattleboro, VT.
