The Great Explorations Children's Museum annual fundraiser, Great Extravaganza, was a Madhatter's Ball this year, and it did not disappoint! The aerialist from Aerial Dragons was performing on the hoop, suspended in the air from the sky-high ceilings, dressed as a Cheshire Cat....she was incredible! She stayed in character the entire time and the crowd was having a great time watching her performances throughout the event and engaging with her for pictures.
The aerialist performing was amazing!!!
The Cheshire Cat for our annual fundraiser, the Great Extravaganza: The Mad Hatter's Ball, was phenomenal! She added so much whimsy and atmosphere to the event. She was professional, poised and perfect for our event!
Response from Aerial Dragons LLC:
Thank you so much for the review. We are so pleased you are happy with our performer.
I have had the delight of watching these girls at several events around Tampa. Every time they perform their passion and charisma radiates through the event. These girls are always evolving and bringing something new to each performance. I have never seen them do the same show twice. Whether they are performing in the air, ground, in a ball, or with fire their magic is sure to leave your guests in awe.

Jessica the founder of Aerial Dragons is a third generation circus performer, whose passion for the industry runs through her veins. For ten years she performed multiple ground and aerial acts in the Sailor Circus, now part of the Circus Arts Conservitory. After graduating high school, she spent many summers teaching children circus arts at different camps around the country.
While attending the University of Central Florida she wanted to tell stories through circus, dance, and clowning so she created two UCF Circus Spectacular productions while majoring in Theatre. After graduating she was a head instructor at Dance and Circus Arts of Tampa Bay for five years. While there, she grew as a performer, teacher, and person in more ways than she thought possible.
With the encouragement of all of her friends and family she started Aerial Dragons which has turned into one of the biggest circus troupes in Tampa Bay. She has been featured at The Ritz, Push Ultra Lounge, Hard Rock Cafe, Largo Cultural Center, Suwannee Music Park, and many other venues around Tampa Bay and beyond. She also perfomed underneath a hot air balloon in South Korea, where she gained the endurance to hang upside down for a whole 15 mins.
Additional Booking Notes
Access to structural I beams, trussing, or rigging points is ideal. We can accommodate ceiling height from 12ft to 30ft depending on the act. Preferred ceiling height for silks is over 20ft, but can be performed as low as 12ft without those big breath taking drops. For those venues that do not have access to rigging points we can provide an indoor rig that goes as high as 14ft, and low as 7ft with a foot print of 12' by 9'. Keep in mind we are very limited on performances in a space of 7ft and can only work as ambiance or characters at this height.
We can provide a freestanding aerial rig that can be placed on any even surface. It is 14ft high and has a footprint of 12' by 9'. We cannot perform in rain, high winds, or freezing temperatures.
We can customize any performance to fit your event. A typical evening would consist of 3 sets ranging from 10-20 mins sets depending on act and number of performers. A full show of entertainment can also be provided with enough notice.
