Wonderson Duo & Circus Building Entertainment at The Heart Ball

A big part of our mission is to grow the professional aerial circus community, and offer new performers and aspiring performers the opportunity to learn the business of performing while getting a foot in the door. The Heart Ball contacted us because they wanted aerial entertainment for their Cirque du Soleil-themed fundraiser. We called on several of the students in our Choreography classes for this event, and we all had a blast! Aerial Performance: This event wanted a duo act on Aerial Silks, so Jordan and Clayton (aka, the Wonderson Duo) performed one choreographed hand to hand act, and two ambient sets on aerial fabric. Costumed Characters Once an aspiring performer has successfully performed in one of our student showcases, we offer the opportunity to be part of professional gigs for those with the desire. Before a new performer gets up in the air at a gig, we require them to attend at least one professional gig as a ground assistant so they know how we run our gigs, they feel confident and ready, and know what to expect. Safety and professionalism always come first. This event wanted ground support to set the theme for their event. We brought two […]

Did you catch Pink’s aerial performance at The Grammy’s?

In case you missed it, here is the video. Pink performed on an aerial rope rigged in the shape of a double hammock. Her performances always inspire! If you’re inspired and want to see what this feels like, we have over 12 beginner classes every week, and a new 12 week Intro to Aerials series starting in February! You can learn aerial silks, aerial slings, aerial hoop, and static trapeze. Once you gain more experience we introduce invented apparatuses, like the one Pink performed on. Happy flying!

Circus Building Entertainment at The Alley’s Studio 300 Anniversary Party

A big part of our mission is to grow the professional aerial circus community, and offer new performers and aspiring performers the opportunity to learn the business of performing while getting a foot in the door. The Alley contacted us because they wanted aerial and circus entertainment for their 1-year anniversary party, and they wanted something different from aerial silks which they had already featured at the last event. We called on several of the students in our Choreography classes for this event, and invented a new apparatus specifically to fit their theme! New Apparatus: For this event the Alley wanted Ambient Aerial Hoop, and something else different. We designed an invented apparatus that we’re calling the Wonderson Cagelier…multiple aerial hoops rigged in the shape of a cage. Invented apparatuses require much testing and practice to go live, so our founders Jordan and Clayton did the prep work and performed 4 solo and duo sets on the Cagelier. New Performers: Once an aspiring performer has successfully performed in one of our student showcases, we offer the opportunity to be part of professional gigs for those with the desire. Before a new performer gets up in the air at a gig, […]
