Methos Aerial seamlessly blends contemporary dance with circus to create dynamic aerial dance performances.
We cater services to each event but here are a couple of options to get you started:
Featured Act: Exciting performance, characterized by quicker paced, dynamic movement. (Generally 4-7 minutes)
Atmospheric Aerial: Luxurious slower paced movement meant to add to the overall "atmosphere" of your event. (15 minutes to several hours)
Aerial Champagne Service: Atmospheric Aerial with the addition of serving champagne, wine or any pre-mixed drink already prepared in a bottle. (15 minutes to several hours)
Methos Aerial is guaranteed to entertain, amaze and inspire at your next event!
I had a great pleasure to work with Methos Aerial (Sarah, Kate, & Catlin) at my New Year's Eve event (Sylwester Chicago 2017). Not only they're extremely talented but also very professional. They provided all insurance/wavers upfront which made me feel very comfortable working with them. At the event, everything went as planned. They first did a solo atmospheric lyra show while guests were entering the hall which was very impressive. During the dinner reception, they performed a duo routine that was incredible. It was simply sexy, emotional, and unique. Even the music they chose was excellent and went perfectly with the routine. The show got a great response/applause from the audience. And with all honestly, I can't wait to she those ladies perform again!
I'll also add that I've dealt with numerous performers in the past and I can confidently say Methos Aerialists are so far my favorite!!!
While our event got pushed to a later date, still wanted to leave a note to say that Sarah at Methos Aerial has been an absolute pleasure to work with and I have no doubt that the performances themselves will be incredible. Looking forward to the new dates and working with Methos again!
The professionalism of the team was impeccable. Sarah, the featured aerialist of the evening was so pretty and looked AMAZING. Guests really enjoyed it.
They were a joy to work with and I think others will feel the same way.
Caitlyn and Sarah were incredible. They were responsive, clear, and professional before, during and after we booked Methos. Their performance was amazing and turned every head in the house. They were incredibly flexible with some unexpected time-slot changes. In addition, they performed for longer segments than any other aerialists we spoke with, making them by far the best value we were quoted. I would recommend them to anyone!

What to Expect
Methos Aerial can provide atmospheric aerial entertainment or a featured aerial act. Atmospheric entertainment is great for a cocktail or dinner hour as background entertainment to enhance the overall feel of your event. A featured act would be a point in an event in which the guests would stop and focus all of their attention on a 5-7 min dynamic act.
We perform duo and solo work on aerial fabric ( silks that hang straight down to the floor), aerial lyra ( a hoop that spins), aerial sling (silks which hang and are looped at the bottom) and aerial spanset (two thin loops). All apparatus are suspended from above.
We love to collaborate with our clients and event coordinators and see how we can best enhance your event. From performance style, to costuming and aesthetic we want to bring your vision to life!
Founded in 2016 the creators of Methos Aerial boldly decided the time had come to express their unique voice in the field of aerial dance.
