Thank you so much for the wonderful wedding day! the champagne diva was exactly what I wanted with my wedding being on New Years! From the communication from the day I inquired to my wedding day I can't believe how awesome this was! Was a huge hit and everyone will remember this experience!
They worked my Halloween party of 100 people and everyone loved them. So upbeat and great at mingling with everyone. Was very happy to have worked with Chandelier Circus and happier that we were assigned Jessica and Rosie!
Rosie and team were great to work with! They were more than accommodating for our event and despite the weather we had a great experience. Walgreens would definitely use them for future events and highly recommend Chandelier Circus.
We hired Chandelier Circus for our company holiday party which was Mardi Gras themed and wanted aerialist, a juggler, and walking table. They were wonderful! The performance was fantastically executed. In planning they were relaxed and responded to questions about the performance and everything they needed quickly. The day of we were able to communicate well so everything went very smoothly. They were able to bring a freestanding rig so it wasn't a problem to not have a ceiling/stage for the aerial performance. I highly recommend them!
The Chandelier Circus is a very professional and easy to work with. They bring class and style to your event. They were easy and adaptable group to work with. They have a passion for their craft and have always been on their A game. We would highly recommend them to anyone that needs something special for the event.
Working with Rosie and her crew was seamless. Communication always quick and detailed. Negotitation with time, space and within budget quite open and flexible. The crowd loved the contortionist and right rope walk act! So many pictures and oh's and ah's. They handled their own music and prompts which was really helpful as I was busy organizing other performers and to-do lists of my own. So proud and content that I p.o. ked working with Chandalier Circuis! They were the highlight of our whole party and I know next year will be even more successful. Can't say enough good things!
Response from Chandelier Circus Entertainment:
Thank you so much, Alison! It was an honor and a pleasure to work with you and your team. We sincerely hope we will have the opportunity to work with you again in the future!
I never knew it could be so easy to hire such great entertianment for my party. I don't know circus terms well, but they walked me through everything and showed me a demo reel which helped me decide what I wanted at my party. I ended up going with a silks routine and juggling. They brought all their own equipment and we're very professional. The show was nothing less than spectacular
Chandelier Circus is truly TOP NOTCH! From the get go, Rosie made planning a breeze! Communication was clear and prompt; Chandelier Circus diligently worked to meet our event needs and customize our performances. The performers were not only professional, but pleasant and friendly. The acts were well coordinated- the aerial hoop and contortion shows were exceptional and the unicycle and tightrope shows were certainly entertaining! I was overwhelmingly impressed with Chandelier Circus' flexibility and adaptability the day of our event; the performers went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy and satisfied! I would not only recommend Chandelier Circus, I would have them back for another event!
Chandelier Circus provided a beautiful opener for our SHINE Women's Conference. 1600 women were in attendance to our event and they were all wowed by the beautiful opener. Chandelier Circus floor and aeriel dancers did a beautiful job capturing the theme of our event. They were professional and flexible to work with.
We used Chandelier Circus as some of the acts for our annual talent show benefit. They were a little expensive compared to the other acts we had, but were talented and a pleasure to work with.
Once again, Chandelier Circus put on an amazing show! They did some atmosphere work and a performance for a fundraiser we were hosting. The audience was blown away and wanted to see so much more!
Thank you, Chandelier Circus!!! :)
Response from Chandelier Circus Entertainment:
Thank you for your kind words! As always, it was a pleasure to work with you and we has so much fun!
My organization booked Chandelier Circus for our annual Holiday Lights Festival Kick Off Extravaganza. It is an outdoor event in Wisconsin in November and includes a variety show, local elected officials and fireworks. Chandelier Circus was easy to work with and very responsive. The pricing is more than fair for the high-level of talent these girls display. They wear tasteful costumes and pick music appropriate for the overall theme of the show. We highly recommend working with Chandelier Circus to bring the wow-factor to your next event; you will not be disappointed!
What can I say about the Chandelier Circus team other than, "AMAZING!".
I have received nothing, but fabulous remarks about how incredible this group of five aerialists were at our event. I highly recommend them! They are kind, genuine people who are extremely talented! You will not be disappointed!
Response from Chandelier Circus Entertainment:
Thank you so much for the review, Brandon! The event was amazing and we had such a wonderful time. Thanks again for having us!!!
I was overwhelmingly pleased to work with Chandelier Circus. They were so professional from start to finish. I had a confidence before the event that they would follow through on everything because the communication was great. Matt T., our juggler was so good and the kids were fascinated by him. He was stationed in our gym but felt comfortable enough to move throughout the other parts of our event. We could not have been happier and will definitely ask them back again!
As a Gamma Phi alum myself, I was super excited to reconnect with the performers!! We hired Nick, Adam, and Rosie to juggle at the Zion Benton prom. The team did not disappoint!!!! They entertained the students with juggling during the dinner hour. Rosie did an excellent job helping the students to become a part of the act too which thrilled the students! Nick and Adam juggled around the students, did tricks, took pictures and talked with the kids The administrative staff could not believe we could pull something like this off and they raved about how much fun it was to bring the theme of the prom to life. A proud and unforgettable evening for sure!!!! I would HIGHLY recommend The Chandelier Circus Entertainment company as the members were professional and fun! Exactly what we were hoping for (and MORE!) thank you again for everything!!!!
We hired Rosie Bliss, along with 3 performers for our daughters first communion brunch. They did a great performance which lasted about 5 minutes (long enough to engage the kids). It was performed to Disney music, and included a variety of acts such as juggling, contortion and partner stunts. The kids loved it. After that, they spent the rest of their time with us teaching the kids various circus skills, such as juggling, plate spinning, and walking a tightwire. They also helped us coordinate the other traditional games we had such as ring toss and "bozo buckets". The kids loved participating, and the performers were wonderful in including and teaching them. Would hire them again for an event in a heartbeat. They definitely made it a memorable party.
We hired Rosie Bliss and two of her other aerialists for our Christmas production at church. We sent them the music the band would before and they came up with the whole program. They were great to work with and extremely professional. I'd recommend them for your event.
