Down to Earth Aerials did an amazing job performing at Appetite 4 Art last week. Guests raved about the event's entertainment! The Down to Earth Aerials girls were full of personality and spunk--they knew how to engage the crowd while also maintaining a professional demeanor.
Down to Earth Aerial's was an integral part of our St. Patty's Day Fundrasier for Whole Planet Foundation. Thanks to them we had real entertainment and an experience that was special and unique - just what we strive to offer our customers! I appreciate Down to Earth Aerial's and their willingness to participate in a great cause.
Working with Amanda Leoni for our Family Fun Day event was easy and stres free. Although Amanda was donating her services to us (a non-profit arts group), she was very professional and took the time to visit our location prior to the event and talk with me about her requirements and our expectations. She was able to adjust her performance to the limitations of our space and design a routine that was family friendly. The event was a great success and Amanda's performance was a perfect, earning lots of positive feedback from the attendees.
I would be happy to work with Amanda and her unique skills in the future.
Amanda performed at our company picnic. she was on time ,very professional, friendly, and outgoing . A lot of her routine incorporated comedy which was great because all the children were very entertained ,as well as the adults . Amanda's performance made our event so special that people were still talking about it weeks after the event was over. I would highly recommend her, she was very engaging with the children and spent a lot of time with them and was very patient.
Down to earth Aerial’s preformed for my 19th birthday party recently and I must say, it was INCREDIBLE. With cutting edge routines paired perfectly together with a fabulous music playlist it is defiantly a performance I would want to see again. Great attitude and really draws the audience in with their flashing display on the aerial silks and the creativity in all the costumes. A must see performance.
So happy to have Amanda and cirque de vol aerial performers in the lululemon athletica store in Raleigh nc! It made for a family friendly event that enrolled families to get outside of their comfort zone and try something new! Such a beautiful art and talented crew made for a jaw dropping and exciting day!!
The perfect combination of strength and grace! She really captivated the crowd. I especially enjoyed how she worked in some comedic moves and gestures. Very unique! Incredibly entertaining! A true artist!
Truly entertaining from start to finish. Consummate professional that is highly skilled and dedicated to her art. A fun and entertaining time was had by all :)
Loved the show. I was very impressed with the artistic composition.
Hi, I’m Amanda Finch, an aerial acrobat living in Downtown Raleigh. I was introduced to aerials as an alternative form of fitness and it evolved into a passion for teaching, as well as a performing arts business. In receiving my education in aerial acrobatics from the New England Center for Circus Arts in Brattleboro, Vermont, I had the opportunity to study and train under some of the original creators and acrobats from “La Nouba” of Cirque Du Soleil. I am a recent 2018 graduate of Ecole Cirque Nationale / Cirque Du Soleil in Montreal, Canada.
Last year I created a Summer Reading Program for the North Carolina Library System. The theme was “Get Ready, Set, Read! Exercising the Mind and Body.” The program encouraged kids to combine physical fitness and reading and was a great success! I taught and performed aerials at over 46 libraries. This summer I’m scheduled to teach at 25 more libraries.
I am a teacher, public speaker, a trainer, a lover of pimento cheese & North Carolina Oysters. Some of my favorite things include runs (walks) through the city of Raleigh and riding my bike on the Greenway. I love the coast and like to spend my time there paddle boarding and fishing. I truly love the City of Raleigh and I am proud to be a part of the creative growth in our community.
Some of my most memorable Aerial Highlights include the following:
1. I met and then hung upside down over the Chinese Ambassador to the United States and his secret service at the Forbidden City Exhibit held at the Museum of Fine Arts in Virginia.
2. I once mistook the real Hall and Oates for a Hall and Oates cover band at a tech rehearsal before a performance in Maine.
3. I met Vanilla Ice at the NC State Fair and later got to see Joan Jett do a tech rehearsal singing the national anthem in the Dorton Arena to our crowd of five people.
4. I performed at the Watkins Glen International Speedway in New York, and then got to take endless pace car rides around the racetrack.
