Aerial Animals

Why book Aerial Animals?

Aerial Animals is a unique collective of youth circus artists. We perform for family, community, corporate, and fund raising events. Our clients tell us that our youth do more to connect with, engage, and inspire their youth than any other group they've seen. When a five-year-old or even a sixteen-year-old sees one of our kids performing,they can see themselves doing it more easily than if they were watching an adult performer. Please look at the kids' faces in the audience of our photos. Additionally, our clients find it more meaningful and inspiring to engage our kids to help raise money for youth causes such as the Denver Children's Advocacy Center.

Queer Prom 2012 - Denver

Koji, Jessi, and Becky were absolutely amazing. I will forever be grateful that they reached out to me. They were the highlight of our event. At one point they had a room full of people not only paying attention to them but dancing as an organized group. It was fabulous. They have already been booked for our next event this month and I am promoting them to other entities as well. These young people are an extraordinary example of youth leadership, empowerment, and community engagement. I feel proud to have connected with them.

Thank you Corey!

Fun-tastically entertaining and a real crowd pleaser!

National Get Outdoors Day Colorado 2012 had the pleasure of hosting the Aerial Animals and the Orphan Circus Troupe at our event. The troupe provided non-stop visual entertainment as well as interacted with our crowd in a meaningful and impactful way. They also collaborated with other preformers like our Drum Circle and Dance teams to get the crowd really enthused about the event! They danced, flew threw the air, balanced and performed in a way that enhanced our event with energy and enthusiasim. We will be sure to have them back next year! They were a HUGE hit!

Corporate Winter Party - 2013

Aerial Animals gave an amazing performance for our company's annual Winter Party! They put together a sort of "Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future" themed show. Aerial Animal's had our employees and their guests complete attention with the applause growing louder and louder with each set. I would highly recommend them for your event, you will not regret it!

Aerial Animals sets the Mood!

AerialAnimals performed at Lincoln High School's prom this past May 4th. We could have not chosen any one better to do the job. Aerial Animals really set the mood to our Cirque Du Myster Prom. We are very content and satisfied with their services. What really stood out from this group is the fact that they are all teens. When you have an outgoing group of young people performe for teens, they really click. Especially when the group of youngsters are outgoing and extremely fun like this set of performers. From a personal experience, I would with no doubt recommend Aerial Animals for any type of event, especially events that need an ambience!

Great performance and professionals!

It was heart warming to see the Aerial Animal kids share their talents to benefit the Denver Children’s Advocacy Center to prevent child abuse. Aerial Animals did more that show up and do an act. They quickly became part of the team and integral part of the show. Their energy and professionalism made our event fun and successful. What can be better than engaging kids to help kids? Highly recommend for your family and fund raising events.

Thank you Soner! The kids are still talking about the "Walk in the Wild Side" event. It was an amazing event!

Aerial Animals provides a great show

Aerial Animals was a crowd-pleaser. Patti is always thinking of ways to improve the spectator experience and was active in suggesting innovative ideas. They performed for both a private party and a block party atmosphere.

Wow - Just wow!

We have a Spring Farm Tour every year up at Grant Family Farms in Wellington that we invite all of our CSA memebers and the general community to. Orphan Circus was an amazing addition to our event! They were professional, entertaining, engaging, and amazingly talented. I look forward to having them back at our future events!

The best party entertainment

I was honored to have Jessie perform at my holiday party late 2011. She was the hit of the party and I know many friends came over just to see her performance. Not only does Jessie perform so artistically, she also choreographs her own shows. She is so talented, poised and humble. I know I would have her booked at least once a month if she only lived in Tucson.

Aerialist Jessie Miller at my garden party

Jessie Miller performed outdoors at my garden party July 2011 in Golden, CO. She and her family quickly set up their really tall rig. Jessie performed several sets which were breathtaking. She is not only athletically superb but has grace and dramatic presence. I hope she'll be able to perform again this summer for us.

Overview

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."

Additional Booking Notes

Aerial Animals

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, stilts, rope, and other apparatus. 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 18 years old, trains and studies with the New England Center for Circus Arts in Brattleboro, Vermont.

Jessica is available to perform solo or with a youth troupe. Aerial Animals does more than perform. We create the circus atmosphere. We engage, connect with, and inspire youth and audiences of all ages. It is particularly delightful to see the smiles on the children’s faces as they circle around to watch Aerial Animals. I see many of the little girls envisioning themselves up there being the aerialist. At community events, we collaborate with other performers to get the crowd really enthused about the event. At high school proms, we have great fun and have been told how wonderful it has been to have us because we connected and inspired the students! Youth entertaining and inspiring youth is our specialty!

Aerial Animals can do atmosphere work or a 20-30 minute choreographed show. Acts include trapeze, duo trapeze, silks, straps, lyra, contortion, hand balancing, clowning, stilts and other acts depending on the availability of our our youth. We have also done themed events such as the aerial bicycle for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge and "Walk on the Wild Side" for the Denver Children's Advocacy Center fund raiser.

Aerial Rig Rental
Jessica also owns an aerial free standing rig which is available for rent in the Denver area. It is very easy to assemble and transport. The rig's maximum height is 25' with a required 21' by 24' foot print. Smaller dimensions are easily available. Please contact for more details. Minimum rental fee $300. Please contact for more details.

Performance Pricing

The pricing of entertainment is based on the operating costs of Aerial Animals, which includes equipment, skills training, safety training, costumes, transportation, rigging staff, and insurance. This allows us to cover expenses and provide high quality entertainment at affordable prices. We'll be a great addition to your community, corporate, fund raising, and family events! Since pricing will depend on type of performance and venue, please contact Patti at pattimiller747@gmail.com or 303.845.0061 for a quote.

Insurance and Youth Employment
Jessica and all of our performers have performer’s insurance through Specialty Insurance Agency.

Influences & Inspiration

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.

For Aerial Performances require a minimum hight of 16 feet and a rigging point or a 20'X20' area to place rig

For ground acts require a 4' wide aisle or 10'X10' floor space
