Home Acts Aerial Acts

In these aerial acts, the performer is literally ‘dancing in the air’: suspended – on fabric, rope, a hoop, or on a trapeze. The performer’s grace, strength and flexibility are showcased, with a combination of mesmerizing shapes, feats of strength, and dramatic drops.

The aerial acts are all usually 4-7mins long, and can be tailored to suit a specific piece of music or length.
Longer, installation style performances can also be provided, on some of the equipment.

Aerial Spanish Web/Corde Lisse

 

 

 A performance on a rope – The performer climbs the rope, and twists it around her body to hang and drop. She also hangs from a hand or foot loop and gets spun around, going through various poses, whilst spinning at high speed.
(This act, if spinning is required, needs two performers – one aerialist, and one ‘spinner’).
