I booked Kelly Jo for my 50th birthday and she alternated with a cyr wheel and hoops. She had all my guests completely entertained, and they have all said it was the best party they had ever been to. The cyr wheel was set to beautiful music and the hoops were absolutely stunning. Kelly Jo was so helpful personally, too. I was in a panic getting ready for the party and she helped me set tables. I am so grateful. Aside from being an AMAZING entertainer, she is just one really NICE person. Will definitely hire her again.
Kelly Jo was wonderful to work with from beginning to end. We went out on a whim and decided to find an aerialist only 1 week before our event. Kelly Jo was quick to respond and we are so glad we decided to go with her. She is friendly, professional, answers questions quickly & open to any ideas or suggestions. She gave an incredible performance that people are still talking about days after the event! We will definitely be contacting In The Dark Circus Acts for future events!
Was amazing and everyone loved it!!
Response from In the Dark Circus Arts:
Thank you Mary! We are glad you loved us and we are so happy to have been apart of your wedding!
Kelly Jo is a friendly, couteous, professional and is willing to work with what you need.
Kelly Jo performed at the 2016 Prom for Williams Valley a small town in Central PA.
She kept in touch, so I didn't have to worry about her arrival. Kelly Jo gave a short but amazing performance for the parents during the promenade. Then she proceeded to entertain the prom attendants. When Kelly Jo started her performance it was while the meal was being served and everyone stopped to watch!! Everything stopped!!
Kelly Jo made the night one to remember and I had students come up to me saying " Best night ever!! Thank you Kelly Jo!!!
Fabulous performance! Both performers were the highlight of the event and really gave our dance that extra 'wow factor'. Students were blown away to see the talented performances throughout the night. I would highly recommend Kelly Jo for future events. Kelly Jo was very professional and worked with our Prom preparation team seamlessly. Overall, I could not be happier with their performance across the board!
I under estimated Kelly's talent and I didn't plan the event around her abilities ..
She needs a show just for her and maybe not at a elementary level. My fault completely. I plan on booking her again but this time better planning on my part.
