Jessica Voler is from Golden, Colorado, but spent a large part of her childhood abroad. At age five, she moved aboard a 43-foot sailboat with her parents and sailed around the world - literally. It was during these early years that she learned how to fly. She spent every free moment of her time climbing the mast and swinging from the rigging. Upon returning to land-locked Colorado, she took up gymnastics, high-flying trapeze, and, in turn, aerial fabric. After discovering the world of circus, she never looked back. Aerial Animals, LLC was founded in 2010 by Jessica and Patti Miller to promote Jessica’s aerial aspirations. Jessica, now 17 years old, has been accepted to the prestigious Le PeTiT CiRqUe in LA and has amazing opportunities for audiences including the Saudi Royal Family..
Jessica’s primary skill is aerial fabric. She has developed a marionette character that can be playful for younger audiences or a bit edgy for general audiences. The act surprises from the start with the marionette coming out of a seemingly smallish closed suitcase. The doll then climbs and dances on the fabric to create a unique performance. Jessica can also perform a lovely fabric routine to any music appropriate to the theme of an event. In addition, Jessica performs stilts, stilts acro, straps, lyra (solo, duo and trio), static trapeze, and high-flying trapeze. Besides performing individually, Jessica performs with Le PeTiT CiRqUe (www.lepetitcirquela.com).

We have had the opportunity to train with Tanya Burka from Cirque du Soleil's Quidam and meet with James Tanabe who was an artistic director for Cirque du Soleil for ten years. Les Sept Doigts. Wise Fools and other performing groups are a big influence. Also, I personally believe in enabling kids to pursue their dreams and our group wants to perform. They are incredible.

Here are a quote from Gary Wink, CEO, Golden Chamber of Commerce
"Your participation in the Golden First Fridays, Wild West Auto Roundup, and USA Pro Cycling challenge contributed enormously to the atmosphere of the festivals. Your passion for aerial fabric is contagious. Many people hadn’t ever seen it before and truly enjoyed your performances. It was particularly delightful to see the smiles on the children’s faces as they circled around to watch you. I could see many of the little girls envisioning themselves up there being you. I understand that one little boy even asked you to marry him! Your artistic aerial and circus acts made for fun-filled events for children of all ages."
