I am a Chicago based circus artist specializing in acrobatic hula hooping with the ability to manipulate multiple hoops from nose to toes, through flips and splits, with LED or fire. My training also includes clowning, aerial arts, dance, and burlesque. I have the ability to perform in a range of contexts from corporate events, festivals, and kids parties.
I have a background in theater and use these character skills to create personable performances. Past clients include family festivals, night clubs, local troupes, and private events. All my packages come with professional costuming to fit the theme and performer insurance.
Omg!! Scarlet is fantastic and amazing!!! I'll have her again for sure! So talented and so sweet!!!!
Scarlet was great for my 40th birthday event. She was very personable and friendly. Her entire performance she blended in to the atmosphere and provided an excellent experience for my guests. We had her dressed in burlesque attire and she wowed my guests. I would definitely recommend her. My pictures don't do her justice, but I was trying to show the lighted hula hoop she had.
Really enjoyed Scarlet, filled in for me at the last minute and performed very well; was a crowd pleaser.
Scarlett Finch is a beautiful performer! The guests at my wedding reception were captivated and wildly entertained. She is incredibly professional and kind! She arrived early and started on time. She was very accommodating and easy going. My friends and family are still asking me where I found such an awesome performer! I highly recommend Scarlett Finch.
As per my experience, she is very professional, co-operative, body is flexible and photogenic.
What to Expect
I am a hoop and burlesque dancer. A typical gig will include costuming appropriate to your event's theme. For example circus stripes for a circus theme, flapper dress for a 1920's theme, corset and feather bustle for the more adventurous. You can expect a polished 5 minute act or some sassy improvisation if a wandering performer is what you are looking for. Skills included will be on body hooping with multiple hoops, tantalizing illusions, hand balancing, flexibility poses such as the splits or back bends as well as burlesque if you are so inclined.
