The Mid-Atlantic's Only Professional Mermaid Pod.
On land or in water, the Circus Siren Pod brings magic and grace to your event as live performing mermaids. From children's events to product expos to corporate parties to aquarium attractions, give your guest something to remember by booking these award-winning, international, performers. Under the direction of Morgana Alba, Washington D.C.'s original mermaid, the Circus Siren Pod has grown to cover everywhere from Richmond, VA to Atlantic City, NJ and have even traveled across the globe, entertaining thousands of adults and children alike.
Due to some unfortunate circumstances, we had some changes we had to make to our event details. Morgana did everything within her powers to insure our granddaughter's 6th birthday would be the magical birthday we'd imagined. She went so far above and beyond; right up to sub-contracting an outside Mermaid, when we discovered an error on the date on the invitations that went out.
Mermaid Alexandra was a delight and so engaging. And even though the pool party had been rained out, she volunteered to get in the pool even though the outside temperatures were only in the low 70s and it had been torrential rains for most of the day!
The children were completely enchanted and the look on my granddaughter's face says it all
My daughter was amazed and happy . The mermaids were very realistic. Really sweet and patient with my daughter and her friends .
This was for a large community pool party with 200+ kids and a pirate theme. The pirate did an excellent job keeping the kids entertained. Very cool costume!
I hired Morgana for my daughters 5th Purr-Maid party (Yes that's a cat and a mermaid haha).. Morgana agreed to wear cat ears for the day and she was everything we could hope for and more. She arrived early and was so discreet while setting up, not one person saw her and she definitely preserved that magical experience. When it was time for the kids, she made each and every one of them feel special all while making the birthday girl priority. I couldn't believe she even invited the kids into the pool with her! This birthday party was one for the books and won't soon be forgotten, all thanks to Morgana. The kids at the party ranged from 3-12, girls and boys, and each and every one of them were in awe. Morgana was so friendly, sweet, beautiful and magical. She read stories to the kids, blew bubbles and posed for many photo ops. It was adorable when a little girl said "Me and my friends pretend we're mermaids!" And Morgana said "Me and my friends pretend we're humans!".... OMG ADORABLE. I can not thank Morgana enough for making my daughters dreams come true for her 5th birthday, meeting a real life (purr) mermaid ;) Thank you Morgana!! ♡
We weren't sure how a mermaid was going to play out since this was an adults-only event and there wasn't a pool for her, but Morgana was amazing!!! She was very engaging and friendly, people loved taking photos with her, and it was more rare/interesting than a stilt-walker. Highly recommend Morgana for any event.
We had two mermaids for an under-the-sea themed, surprise, 21st birthday party. The girls were on time, professional, and a huge hit with the guests! They swam, posed and played games. The birthday girl was thrilled! Highly recommend.
Very nice and polite but she only stayed in one stop the entire night. Really would've liked her to swim around the pool more instead of just saying in one stop and posing for pictures
Response from Morgana Alba and the Circus Siren Pod:
After review of the event with the performer, our understanding is such: the mermaid in question swam through 3 different, though connected, pools (as verified by the lifeguards on duty) both above and below the water and engaged with partygoers throughout. She played basketball in the "shallow pool" as well as greeted guests exiting the slide in the "deep pool" and posed for photos in both the "kiddy pool" and on the deck of the "shallow pool."
Given that it was a very large and widespread, adult, party, it is completely understandable that the booking customer was unaware of the breadth of customer interaction as they were, naturally, busy celebrating their birthday.
She came to entertain the children at my daughter's birthday party and they were captivated. The pool was too cold so we moved it to dry land and the kids were still over the moon.
Mermaid Morgana was nothing short of fantastic. We hired her for our 4year old's swimming pool birthday party (mermaid themed of course) and she was so professional, so wonderful and kind, and had such an amazing tail, my daughter was enamored. I highly recommend having her at your event. She comes with shells for the kids, is willing to sing songs, play games and answer all the mermaid questions the kids have.
I highly recommend Mermaid Morgana! We had to change our event date at the last minute and she was very accommodating despite the fact that she had to endure rush hour to get to the venue. She even showed up early to ensure that we could enjoy as much of the daylight as possible. The kids were enchanted. She made our party very special.
Mermaid Morgana was a hit at my daughter's 6th birthday party! She surprised the guests as she swam through the water and greeted the birthday girl! She swam with the kids, blew bubbles, and gave each kid their own seashell!! This was definitely a memorable birthday thanks to Mermaid Morgana :)
Must have! Morgana was so great with kids- on top of having an amazing costume. She came early to get ready and set up. Great communication. She read a book to the children, took pictures, played in the water with the guest, and gave out sea shells. We loved having her and would recommend her services to any under the sea party!
What to Expect
A versatile performer: our mermaids bring a beautiful performance full of magic and grace, no matter what your event may be. If you're looking for an aquarium experience, as a trained acrobat Morgana's underwater maneuvers set her apart from your average mermaid-in-a-tank. At children's parties all our mermaids both entertaining and educational, with stories, songs, and facts about the deep blue sea. And, if a mermaids alone just aren't enough, the pod are long standing friends of the tight-knit Baltimore/Maryland pirate community and would be happy to bring some scallywags along.
Our promotional models know just how to flip that tail to draw an audience to your boat or hot tub. And, when booking for an adult event, our performers' years of award-winning cabaret performances means she can mix the right kind of sass with the perfect level of mystique that leaves your guests with something to talk about.
And to bring a show-stopping feature to your festival or private event, just ask about our travel tanks!
Morgana grew up swimming in the clear Caribbean waters. As an adult, she ran off to join the circus. As an award-winning circus performer, she followed her heart back to the sea by becoming a live mermaid. Today she appears at festivals, children events, and even travels internationally to entertain at Sandals Resorts in Jamaica. Morgana's one-of-a-kind rose gold tail was custom made by a private manufacturer and is a full silicone tail with an extended fluke, measuring over 5ft long from waist to tip. There is truly none like it in the world.
In 2012 she brought her tail to the nation's capital becoming the first established mermaid performer in the District of Columbia. In a constant endeavor to bring the magic of a mermaid to as many people as possible, Morgana hired, trained, and created the Circus Siren Pod. Originally hailing from as far away as Panama and Hawaii, this group of 8 professional mermaids now spans the mid-atlantic, with artists living in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., Delaware, and New Jersey.
The pod performs both on land and in the water. They can splash in your local pool, lounge in a treasure chest, or stretch across the bow of your boat. From promotional work, to cabaret, to children's parties, no one brings awe and mystique to your event quite like the circus siren pod.
Two different sizes of travel tank are available for indoor and outdoor events if any size or style. The 3,000 gallon performance tank has allowed them to bring the first underwater burlesque show to the north east.
And just in case you're the go-big-or-go-home-type: the Circus Siren Pod includes both certified advanced open water divers and experience aquarium mermaids. Thier diverse background of marine life education, free-diving, and scuba-diving techniques makes them uniquely qualified to perform in live aquarium tanks or open ocean for your event. After all, spear fishing lion fish in her tail off the coast of Jamaica one of Morgana's favorite ways to spend a day.
