Additional Booking Notes
Lighting and Rigging and Staging are venue specific, and the needs of the act and the venue will vary the technical aspects of the performance or aerial show. Whether a venue is under Union contract or rigging is done by our company will vary the needs and the prices of an act. For quotes on rigging, a company member will need to meet with the owner/manager of the building, and have access to see the space before a specific quote can be made. Safety is always our first concern, and the most important aspect of aerial work, and the integrity of our art.

Influences & Inspiration
The Contemporary Circus Arts movement popularized by Cirque du Soleil has influenced all of us. A "host" is the bird grouping name for a flock of Sparrows, and we have all come together, artists who dream of flying to create art, inspire, and aspire to push boundaries. Host of Sparrows Aerial Dance performs and also teaches aerial and circus arts through their non-profit affiliation with Dogtown Dance Theatre 501(c)(3), and is an ally with Circus Now, a Nationally recognized non-profit for the education, development, and collaboration of circus artist and artists.
Aerial performances require contact with the building owner/manager before a contract can be made with the client.
