What an absolute beautiful display of elegance, strength, and talent! I had the opportunity to see Aerial Events up close while visiting Destin, FL at The Harborwalk. I have seen many aerial shows around the US, but Aerial Events blew me away. From their makeup and costumes, to their rig and advertising, I am impressed!
Their technique is impeccable. They do tricks and drops I've never seen anyone else do. They perform on lyra as well as fabric!

What to Expect
Aerial Events' performance options fit into three broad categories: background ambiance, acts, and shows.
Our ambiance services are designed to provide background entertainment and atmosphere for your event. It’s a very visual, high impact way to add value to your party, fundraiser, or gala. Aerial Events’ ambiance opportunities allow for a wide variety of entertainment options guaranteed to fit the theme of your event. Aerial champagne serving and bartending falls into this category.
In an aerial act, our talented aerialists perform a choreographed routine to specific music, rendering your guests speechless. With an average length of four minutes, an act can be performed at any time during the event to liven things up, get the crowd's attention, or reinforce the event theme! Acts can be performed from a rigging point or on our elegant and unobtrusive portable aerial rig.
Our shows combine a mix of aerial and ground performances to provide a full show guaranteed to thrill! Shows can be modified to fill your exact time slot, from fifteen minutes to an hour, with the standard length being thirty minutes.
We also offer a variety of ground acts to accompany the aerial entertainment; including stilt walking, fire dancing, fire breathing, contortion, veil dancing, hooping, and acrobatic partnering.
These types of performances can be combined - a common event package has 1 hour of atmospheric ground acts with 2 performers, 1 hour of stilt walking, 1 hour of ambiance aerial dancing or aerial champagne serving, and 2 aerial acts. We are happy to create customized packages upon request!
We are a group of ladies on Florida’s Emerald Coast who fell in love with aerial dance and love to share this beguiling form of entertainment with others. We live to charm your guests and entertain the crowd! Operating out of Panama City, Florida; we are available nationally.
Aerial Events was founded in 2014 by Lydia Faith, who was joined in performance by aerial training pals from the panhandle’s best aerial studio: Aerial Dance Panama City. Since then the company has expanded to embrace a lovely group of twelve talented aerialists. Each performer has a different performance background and flair, which makes for a diverse and entertaining troupe!
Our performance company is established on the principles of professionalism and encouragement. We’re not just a bunch of snooty aerialists! We understand that events aren’t for us, they’re for the client and guests to enjoy; and we do everything in our power to ensure a seamless, exciting event that guests can’t stop talking about.
We have performed nationwide at gorgeous holiday parties, corporate events, grand openings, clubs, private parties, festivals, shows, birthday parties, fundraisers, galas, balls, product launches, and fashion shows. We transform ho-hum events into mesmerizing parties!
Aerial Events is proud to work with the top aerialists on the Emerald Coast. Our performers are known for their approchabilty, versatility, professionalism, and exceptional artistic ability. We know events are a challenge to plan and execute, and the last thing you need to worry about are your performers. Our aerialists are punctual, flexible, helpful, and committed to making your event unforgettable.

Aerial Show Themes:
Vintage Circus: Our most popular circus show, which combines all the fun and drama of the circus! Parasols and wings twirl, acrobats romp, and dancers pirouette while an aerialist defies gravity high in the sky. This show is perfect for any event or age group and had been performed at fundraisers, parties, galas, and grand openings.
White Circus: An exciting, high-energy circus show appropriate for audiences of all ages! Directed by their exuberant ringleader, a dancing ballerina and cheerful clowns frolic for your entertainment! Parasols and veils twirl and whirl through acrobats and aerialists until the crowd stands and cheers! This long circus romp is perfect for birthday parties, circus-themed events, fundraisers, or grand openings.
Wind Up Circus: A mysterious ringleader brings a magical menagerie to life with the aid of an enchanted wind up key. A ballerina dressed all in white dances en pointe under the guidance of her maker, a child’s doll performs splits and backbends, a marionette puppet performs on its own. But what happens when the dancers’ gears wind down?
Cirque Diabolique: If you dare, step right up to the dark side of the circus! Follow a mysterious figure behind the curtain to see what happens in the shadows of the circus. Guided by the light of lanterns, sinister robed dancers dance around a masked aerialist as she drops from the ceiling. Thrilling and creepy, this show is perfect for Halloween and dark circus-themed events. If you like American Horror Story, you’ll love this show!

Influences & Inspiration
Our creative juices never run dry! Aerial Events goes on frequent retreats to catch aerial shows and receive top-level training. We have to admit we’re biased, and our favorite shows often include our former aerial instructors! We love the shows Cirque du Soleil Zumanity (previous home to our former instructor Lesley Vaughn) and Cirque Du Soleil Toruk (starring our one-time coach Giulia Piolanti), and have enjoyed training at L’Oracle Las Vegas, Trapeze Las Vegas, Trapeze School New York – DC, Sky Candy Austin, Sky Gym Atlanta, The Space Atlanta, and Scorpius Dance Theatre (to name a few). It’s a great way to experience different styles of aerial performance and training to diversity our knowledge base!
We are also inspired by everyday life - a moving song, a special costume, an emotional situation, or a style of movement. We challenge ourselves to be continuously innovative and creative.
With our elegant portable aerial rig, we can easily perform indoors or outside in just about any space! We offer five-minute aerial and ground acts, thirty-minute aerial productions, and ground or aerial ambiance background entertainment by the hour. Our acts and shows are constantly evolving and improving as we master new skills and incorporate new costumes and performers. Each performance is tailored to the event and its needs, which allows for a fresh and unique show every time. We love working with clients to make their vision a reality!
Client must provide a Rigging Point or rent our Portable Aerial Rig for aerial acts.
Aerial requires a minimum vertical height of 17 feet.
For acts and shows, client must provide lighting and auditory services.
