Ian Jagel

Social Circus Director & Coach

Ian’s work focuses on physical expression, from absolute stillness to virtuosic acrobatics.  Having received training in physical theatre from the Ecole Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq in Paris, Ian explores the potential of acrobatic movement in narrative performance.
During the day, Ian is the Social Circus Program Director at SANCA offering a variety of classes to at-risk youth and adults in the greater Seattle area.  Elsewhere in Seattle, Ian has taught Clowning for Teatro Zinzanni as well as Acting and Physical Comedy for Seattle Children’s Theatre where he completed the Teaching Artist Fellowship program in 2013.
At the heart of his teaching is the desire to animate his students and to ignite a passion for joyous, physical expression.
