OMG! I wanted something special for my son's 6th birthday. His birthday theme was spiderman. I started searching the web to try to find something. Well I happen upon Shelly Entertainment. That's when it came to me to have "Spiderman". OH my gosh was it a great idea. Ben(spiderman) reach out and we discussed the party details. When my son and his friends entered the room my son was totally shocked and his friends were speechless. Ben was WONDERFUL, FANTASTIC, TERRIFIC AND ABOVE ALL PROFESSIONAL. He made my son feel special for the day. Ben interacted with everyone children, parents and the staff at the venue. He played with my son and his friends the entire time. He took pictures with family and friends. Oh my gosh he even did stunts like spiderman. He was everything I expected and more. I will be contacting this company for other entertainers especially Ben. Trust me you will not be wasting your money. Shelly is very nice and accommodating. Please consider this company for you next event entertainment you will not be disappointed. HE WAS WORTH EVERY SINGLE DIME!!!!!
We had two performers for our event, and they were both a hit with the crowd. No one was expecting their performances because our theme was a little hush hush, but as soon as guests saw the performers they were able to escape for a few hours and get lost in the event. Will book again!!
I saw Shelly at a work conference in Washington DC. Outstanding performances and very talented. Was a joy to watch and hope to she her again at our conference.
What to Expect
Choreographed Act: Shelly currently has 3 intricately choreographed 4-6min acts. This type of performance is best for an event where there is an audience sitting down and the main focus is on the performance. For example, an aerial silks act performed high above your guests as a kick start to your event. If enough notice is given, Shelly can choreograph one of these routines to music of your choice for an additional fee. Choreographed acts include: contortion, aerial silks, and aerial hoop.
Ambient/Atmospheric Performance: This type of performance is best for when the audience is circulating. Such as a contortion living statue, gracefully positioned on a pedestal during the cocktail hour. She will amaze your guests with amazing and impressive tricks, while your guests mingle and enjoy the ambiance of your event. Another example could be Shelly greeting your guests while twirling a ribbon or hula hooping. Ambient/Atmospheric Performances include: contortion, aerial silks, aerial hoop, aerial sling, stilt walking, partner balancing, chair balancing, ribbon dancing, Chinese pole, living statue, juggling, and hula hooping.
Strolling Performance: For this type of performance, Shelly will move about your event, mingling, and entertaining your guests. For example, strolling around your venue on stilts, while distributing party favors and taking pictures with your guests. Strolling Performances include: stilt walking, ribbon dancing, hula hooping, juggling, and modeling.

Cirque Du Soleil's premier of Kurios in Tyson's Corner
Pippin the Musical on Broadway
Hong Kong with Imago Entertainment
Italy, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas with Cirque Productions

Additional Booking Notes
Aerial Rigging Requirements:
To rig in your venue, I need a solid attachment point rated at least to 2000 lbs. as well as a ladder, manlift, catwalk or other safe method of accessing this point. The height of this point must be at least 16ft. If the height of the attachment point is higher than 30ft, please mention this in your initial contact. Regardless of listed rating, I will always retain the right to refuse to perform if I do not feel safe and comfortable with the provided rigging point. Inspection of the rigging point prior to the event is suggested in order to avoid any confusion.
For outdoor, or large indoor venues, I can supply freestanding rigging for an additional fee.
The rig requires a 30x30ft unobstructed ground area and 25ft height clearance. The rig does have an option of a lower setup, which requires a 25x25 unobstructed ground area and 17ft height clearance. This arrangement would be best used for ambient/atmospheric aerial hoop or aerial sling performance.
Stilt Walking Requirements:
In order to perform stilt walking in your venue, I will need a minimum ceiling height of 10 feet, and relatively flat terrain.
