Steve Minnihan

co-founder, co-manager, co-owner

Steve spent a decade training marathons and triathlons, but he found a new love for movement when he started yoga in 2008. From there, he reached outside his comfort zone to try dance, gymnastics, martial arts, and more. in 2012, Steve walked into Esh Circus Arts, and he never looked back. He completed the Intensive Track and Professional Track training programs at the New England Center for Circus Arts (NECCA) in 2016. 

Steve has a bachelor's degree in Material Science Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, and he loves examining and explaining the math and science behind circus rigging. When he's not in the studio, Steve is a cat owner and an avid stand-up and improv comedy fan.
