Alysia was fantastic! My husband and I wanted something special for our wedding so we searched and found Alysia online and asked her for a free quote for an aerial performance at our wedding. She was very professional and patient right off the bat. She helped us narrow down exactly what we were looking for and made it happen. She was even able to organize a fire performance with her and 3 others later in the evening for our 'big send off' at the end of our wedding. We had a very strict wedding venue and Alysia was able to work flawlessly to make it work for everyone. Our wedding planner commented to us that everyone that Alysia brought with her from her fellow performers to the people that set up her aerial rig were extremely professional, quick, and a all around pleasure to work with. Alysia made everything so easy for us by directing all questions about the venue, insurance, etc to our wedding planner and all the fun performance questions such as type of music, acts, length of acts, etc towards us (I didn't even have to ask). The thought of hiring an aerialist and fire dancers for our wedding seemed daunting at first but we honestly could not have asked for a easier planning process or a more talented person to work with. We (and our friends) have seen our fair share of cirque shows and Alysia's skills are the best! She performs with a great deal of variety from the tricks that she uses to the art forms/skill's themselves (fire hoop/fire fans/aerial silks/aerial hoop, etc) All our guests loved her and her group of fire performers. They looked as amazing as they we're amazing to work with! Thank you!
