Here's what people are saying about us:
“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 Duo 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

We can present anything from a single performer for a short a la carte event to a stand alone 20 – 40 minute Cirque-style show with a variety of performers.
Most aerial acts can be presented with a solo performer, multiple solo performers (who do not interact with each other) or duo performers entwined within one act.
Our aerialists can perform on aerial silks, trapeze, aerial hoop, aerial rope, and a variety of unique aerial apparatuses
Unique Aerial Apparatuses:
Double Bar Trapeze
Four Strand Fabric
A ground-based duo performing acrobalance or acrodance. These performers can perform as an ambient or a featured act in which they balance each others body weight and move in synchronized patterns.
ADDITIONAL GROUND ACTS
Towering high above the crowd, these performers are sure to attract attention. They can provide reception service, such as welcoming guests with a drink or a handout, or they can simply act as an interesting spectacle.
A ground-based solo or duo act that can be performed as an ambient or featured act and may include props or versatile costumes. These performers specialize in astounding displays of flexibility and poise.
Captivating your guests with skilled acts that involve moving props, and can be performed as an ambient or featured act. These performers dance and spin hoops, batons, or light-up poi.
Elaborately costumed to match your theme, these performers move among the crowd interacting and engaging with guests as a scene character to set the mood for your event. They may use props and are available for photos. Think of them solely as actors and entertainers.
Costumed to match your theme, these performers are meant to provide a helping hand to the function of your event for simple tasks in which they will interface with your guests. Perfect if you need stylish assistance with auctions or fundraising during the event. Think of them as entertainers, foremost, but with a functional and flexible role.
Illuminate your event by requesting our LED frames. These colorful, lighted shapes are a fun way to brighten up our ground acts. They can be used to engage with guests for photos or to provide a glowing frame for performances. Available with our stilt walkers, acrobats, contortionists, and walkabout characters.
Aerial Acts can be featured, meaning they are tightly choreographed to music and featuring the biggest tricks. These include solo and 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.
Aerial acts require either an existing rig point that our rigger can tie into, or enough ground space for us to set up our freestanding portable rig. Contact us to discuss rigging options for your event. The first local site visit is free!
