Why hire Wonderson?
Wonderson Duo specializes in aerial and acro performances for events of all sizes and themes. From center-stage acts to background characters in the air, we provide it all.
We perform solo (one performer/one apparatus), duo (two performers/two apparatuses), and hand to hand (two performers/one apparatus) acts on aerial silks, aerial hammock, lyra, static trapeze, and duo acrobalance on floor.
We are based in Charleston, SC and we have trained in New York City, Mexico, Vermont, Atlanta, and North Carolina. We have performed in a variety of venues ranging from small intimate gatherings to arena-sized shows. We love to travel and collaborate. Please contact us to discuss your event!
Wonderson Duo features Jordan Anderson and Clayton Woodson. They have a unique and deep connection apparent in their partner performances, both on and off the ground. They currently live, train, and teach in Charleston, SC, but they originally hail from New York City.
Aerial acts are thrilling and memorable, especially when seen up close. These acts require secure rigging points (or space for our portable rig) and ceilings at least 16 feet high.
The following aerial acts are currently available:
* Aerial Silks
* Duo Aerial Silks
* Static Trapeze
* Partner Static Trapeze
* Aerial Hammocks (Sling)
* Partner Aerial Hammocks
* Aerial Awards and Gift Giving
* Aerial Photo Ops
* Aerial Drink Service
Aerial Acts can be featured, meaning they are tightly choreographed to music and featuring the biggest tricks. These include duo acts and are best when the guests or audience will be watching together.
Aerial Acts can also be ambient, meaning that the aerialists hang around in their apparatuses while the event goes on below. This is best when guests will be milling around, or when a "sit-down-and-watch" type of performance is not desirable for any reason. Ambient Acts include Aerial Award Ceremonies, Aerial Drink Service, Aerial Photo Ops, and Aerial Statues.
Contact us to discuss which would be best for your event.
Acrobalance melds strength, flexibility and beauty. These acts can be performed outdoors or indoors and require very little setup, although a stage is recommended.
The following ground/stage acts are currently available:
* Burlesque Acrobalance
* Burlesque Acrobalance with Chair
We will work with you to select existing choreography and costumes or create new choreography and costumes to match the theme of your event. We are flexible (:)) and anything is possible!

“Mesmerizing, gravity-defying feats of athleticism…” – Charleston Magazine
“I just have to say THANK YOU for the awesome job you did Friday night. Not only was your performance outstanding but your professionalism made it such a pleasure to work with you…it took our event to a whole new level!” – Cirque des Etoiles
“Have you ever seen 150 attorneys speechless? After Wonderson performed at my law firm’s litigation seminar party, attorneys and their guests from all over the United States, Canada, and the U.S.V.I. were speechless and spellbound. The combination of acrobatics, dance, and the stunning visual effect of performing high off the ground on nothing more than a silk sash left our guests holding their breath. It was a magical performance and our co-counsel still talk about it to this day.” – Private Party Planner
