Krista Smithers’s is a California grown aerial artist. After receiving her AA in the East Bay, she transferred to UC Santa Cruz for film school. After her graduation, she decided to commit her life to aerial arts.
Krista's success as an aerialist is largely due to her versatility as a performer. By mixing momentum, strength, and musicality, she has had the opportunity to perform on tours, at weddings, and in night clubs (to name a few ;) around the world! It is without a doubt that Krista can work with you to meet your needs for your event!
What apparatus would you like at your next event? Will I need to provide the aerial rig? How can I help?
Don't hesitate - I'm here to serve you!
We are so glad that we hired Krista to perform on our wedding day. Krista is such an incredible and talented aerial artist, she really was a highlight of the evening! Professional, talented, and kind are all words that come to mind when we think of her. We look forward to the next big event where we have an excuse to hire her again! 10/10 recommend her for any event you want to elevate to the next level!

What to Expect
Before the event date we will chat or message about your specific needs.
I will ask questions such as:
What is the event?
Would you like silks or the hanging hoop (or any other apparatus)?
Would you like a choreographed piece or ambiance?
How will we hang the apparatus? Will I need to bring my own rig?
After I get an idea of the event and we agree on a rough timeline of the event, I'll give you a few options along with quotes that you can choose from.
Once we agree on a package, I will send you a deposit invoice (sliding scale depending on client's needs. Up to $500).
Bookings will only be scheduled once I have received the deposit.
Approaching show day I will be available for any/all questions regarding aerial.
It is common to build and break down the aerial hang point on the same day of the event (like catering), but the timeline can easily change based on your needs!
Final payout is expected upon arrival (or before arrival) on the day of the event.
Krista Smithers’s success as an aerialist is largely due to her versatility as a performer. She was the lead aerialist while on tour with Caravan Stage Company, a theater group that travels by tall ship (CA). She has worked with many production companies, such as Aerial Experience Productions in Los Angeles (USA) and Veinte Varos Producciones in Playa del Carmen (MX). In addition, she currently looks forward to her third tour with Cherry Bombs, a rock’n’roll cabaret group based out of Las Vegas (USA).
Rope connoisseur, Allison Cooper, has been Krista’s rope coach and mentor since 2015. Allie has not only taught Krista the wonders of momentum and sequencing, but has also connected her with amazing coaches, such as Juan Luis Gonzales, with whom she received independent straps training. Furthermore, Krista has trained under Alex Allan (rope), Emiliano Ron (rope), Leslie Tipton (flexibility), and Dominik Wyss (straps).
When Krista is not training or performing, she is binge-listening to business/finance or true crime podcasts. She loves carving on her snowboard and dreaming about future travels.
