    Liz's circus journey started with a curiosity about aerials silks after seeing cirque shows in Las Vegas. That is when she found Air Temple and started taking classes in aerial silks. Her love for circus only grew from there leading to classes in lyra, trapeze, rope, and most recently Chinese pole. She also performed a rope act for Air Temple Art's most recent show Reverie in Black & White. After about two years at Air Temple Liz started as a teacher's assistant and later progressed to teaching. Liz loves all things circus and always looks for new things to try and train.

    "The circus had been unlike anything I could ever have imagined and I could not walk away. I wanted to be a part of the magic; create it and wield it with such skill that it looked effortless. I wanted to fly."
    -Laura Lam Pantomime

    Stephen grew up in a small town in Connecticut and discovered Gymnastics at age 12. He competed gymnastics for 6 years and spent two years as a gymnastics coach. That was when he discovered New England Center for Circus Arts. In 2012, Stephen was lucky to be accepted into the NECCA Intensive training program, where he discovered Roue Cyr, and Hand Balancing. After completing their 2-year program, he went on to train at Ecole de Cirque de Quebec for 3 years where he discovered his love for Aerial Straps. Since then he has been training those three disciplines and designing his own training styles. Between Dance, Circus, Acrobatics, or performing, there is nothing he would rather be doing.
