Jacob Skeffington


Partner acrobatics, handstands

Jacob Skeffington has experienced a vast range of skill and varied approaches to the circus, from being a founding member of a small youth company to performing with the Cirque du Soleil.

He attended two professional circus schools, one to start his career and one to upskill and refocus later in his performing career. The first was one of the top schools in the West, the National circus school in Montreal, and the other one of the top schools in the East, the China National Acrobatics Troupe in Beijing.

Comparing the different ways that these large institutions approach training was a leading factor in his decision to create Eastern Acrobatics, leveraging his wide-ranging experience to create the best systems for learning at all levels and ages.
