Awesome!

I hired Riot to complete my vision for my circus themed wedding. She was the pure aerialist that I wished for and I enjoyed every minute of her performance. I would definitely recommend her service and hire her again for an event in the future. Thank you again!

Thank you, Lori! So glad you enjoyed it!

Excellent Family Entertainer!

Riot is exactly that... a RIOT! She has many costumes, and she is a lovely performer! I've seen her at many venues and with many different crowds of people. She is always enthralling and captivating! She never has an issue talking to people in between her shows and she is a great teacher as well!

Riot Rocked the South Magazine Hot Release Party

Riot's performance at South magazine's recent HOT issue release party was a big hit. Her performance was just the edge we needed at the party to provide our guests with live entertainment out of the box. I would highly recommend Riot for any event that needs professional entertainment. - Michael Brooks, Publisher, South magazine

Amazing performer and instructor

I have had the privilage of watching Riot Hooping perform in lots of shows!!! Her performance is exciting and suspensful at times, just the way an aerialist should be. Her intricate manuvers through the fabric she works in are amazing, she climbs, wraps herself up, does IMPOSSIBLE poses without holding on with her hands, and then just when you think its enough she does these "drops" where she lets go and falls but is in control the entire time. Her music and routines are really fun and adaptable to any atmosphere. I have also had the privilage of taking a class with her and as an instructor she is very patient and understanding of everyones abilities, strength, and flexibility levels. She is totally worth every penny for both performance, and classes!!! I can't wait to take a hooping class with her next!!!

I am always a bit skeptical when I see a very pretty girl in costume ready to perform. I've seen a lot of people with the 'diva' mentality. But Riot definitely has the talent!! I saw her hooping performance at The Sentient Bean and then took an Aerial Silks class with her the following day. She is very kind, offers great advice, and is extremely helpful with her students. She also knows that certain moves may be harder for some than others and can show you alternative methods geared toward your range of comfort. Her performance on the silks was also top notch. I recommend Riot 100%!

Review by J. M.

I was amazed at the fluid movements of Riot Hooping, the grace of spins, and the massive rush you get watching her launch herself at the ground only to be saved at the last moment by the knots around her feet and ankle. It was interesting to see the way that she wrapped the silk in simple configurations around her that were both stable to keep her safe in her routine, and then slip easily for the next movement. Truly fascinating, more so than a simple trapeze, the red silk and Riot Hooping added a air of class to the proceedings, while still tying her style to the affair and the rock and roll aspect of the underground scene.

Review by Peter B.

Second time I've seen Riot perform. First time was illuminated hooping but this most recent performance (Blood, Sweat and Boards art show) was Aerial Dance. The performance was elegant, well choreographed, and beautifully done. It was very obvious that she is extremely well trained and talented and loves what she is doing. If the opportunity presents itself, I will certainly come out to see her again.

She is glorious to behold and one hell of an aerial silks performer. During my time with the Big Apple Circus I saw quite a few performers doing web and silks so I have a basis for comparison, Riot is top-notch.

Riot Hooping & Aerial Dance

Riot was a gymnast. Then she was a soccer player. But she traded her cleats for knitting needles. A hula hoop came along, but she didn’t want to put down her knitting. Now Riot knits and hula hoops, but not at the same time (though she has tried). After a while, Riot decided to add more dimension to her performances with aerial silks.

A more recent addition has been aerial bartending. Let Riot hang from her portable aerial rig or appropriate ceiling and serve wine, beer, or champagne to your guest for an unforgettable experience.

Riot lives, hoop dances, and does aerial silks in the NYC area. She combines her background in gymnastics with her love for punk music, burlesque, and hula hooping.
