Why book Gemini Trapeze?

Award winning aerialists offer duo trapeze, solo trapeze and aerial silks. Formerly with Cirque du Soleil, we are identical twin sisters who offer you the best in 'cirque' style performances. Bronze medalists at the Albacete Circus Festival / Special Award winners at the Wuqiao Circus Festival. Simply the best.




Perfect for Block Party

We hired three NimbleArts performers to do roving entertainment for our downtown block party, and they were arguably the coolest thing we had going on. They juggled, stiltwalked, did partner acrobatics, did balloon animals, contortionism...they were multi-talented, and fantastic for both the child-friendly and college-student oriented parts of the evening. Will definitely work with them again.

Wonderful, talented and professional

In the heat of planning a 200+ guest event my entertainment fell through 3 days before the party. I contacted Serenity and Elsie Smith who were more than willing to book a performance with ONE day's notice and were really understanding of budget and space.

The party was a blast and our clients had nothing but great things to say about the entertainment.

Thanks again!

Awe-inspiring, transfixing & fun!

We really loved the circus and Gemini Trapeze!
Last July, Nimble Arts returned with two performances on New London's Parade Plaza. Everyone was transfixed by Gemini Trapeze's elegant routines with a trapeze and silks. There were amazing feats of balance, beauty, & lots of fun.

Gemini Trapeze are fabulous artists!

Gemini Trapeze are two of the most amazing artists I have ever seen! They are the complete package - professional, creative, very easy to work with and talented beyond belief! I have used them so many times and they are always a hit. My clients rave about their performance and so do the guests. I book them every chance I have and am in awe with each performance.

Additional Booking Notes

We have a minimum rigging height of 16 feet, prefer 20-24 feet, and can work higher as needed. We also have our own freestanding aerial rig that requires a space of 25' x 25' on the floor and 19' ceiling height. Our basic lighting needs are quite easy, but having focused theatrical lights enhances the event. The only request is no strobe, and we must be lit from floor to ceiling.

Gemini Trapeze

Elsie and Serenity Smith have performed for circus touring shows, corporate events, weddings, house parties, awards ceremonies, film and television. We can take care of all technical details including rigging. We have our own free standing aerial rig or can work with you to determine if we can rig in your chosen venue.

Influences & Inspiration

Our work with Cirque du Soleil's Saltimbanco was certainly influential. . .and still we are inspired by the creative spirit that comes to us when we imagine the next invented apparatus to work on, when we dream of a new trick to try, when we attempt the seemingly impossible. Where do these moments begin? Glimpsing rainbows in the sky, going to the ballet with our grandmother, tasting fresh fruit from the garden, seeing a Degas painting -- it is all part of our selves for we are the creators and we are the inventors and we are the influencers and anything is possible!
