Frequently Asked Questions

What are the rigging requirements for an aerial dancer?

Aerialists require a rigging point to safely attach their equipment so it is important to confirm this with the venue as soon as possible. Many venues will offer a rigging point or work with rigging suppliers but for those that do not, it will need to be supplied externally.

How much height do I need for an aerial dance?

As a rule, 6 metres is the recommended height for an effective aerial display especially for aerial silk dancing that incorporates drops in the choreography. For venues with lower ceilings, aerial hoop is a wonderful alternative. Standing at just 3.5 metres tall allows the artist to perform on top of the hoop as well as inside and below.

What are the different types of aerial performance?

There is a fantastic variety on offer when it comes to aerial dancing and many of our artists specialise in multiple styles. From silks, trapeze, rope and hoop to Chinese pole, aerial cube, aerial spiral and many more! The options are endless and can be delivered as solo, duo, trio or group performances depending on your preferences.

Can I hire an aerialist outside of the UK?

Absolutely! We have an outstanding roster of aerial acts in every corner of the world so if you’re interested in an act outside of the UK, we can help. Likewise, if you’re holding an event overseas then please get in touch.

CASE STUDY: Vertical Fashion Show on the Burj Khalifa, Dubai

We made the 2014 Dubai Shopping Festival an event to remember by creating a record-breaking visual statement that attracted global media attention with the first EVER vertical fashion show! 

Six performers suspended in the air proceeded to cascade down gorgeous silks draped down the side of the colossal Burj Khalifa, while models simultaneously walked the runway below. 

Our aerialists finished their performance by descending with the colours of the UAE flag behind them, carrying DSF shopping bags for a climatic (and branded) finale. We’re delighted to have been awarded ‘Best Entertainment Production’ for this event at the Middle East Event Awards.

Things to consider before hiring an aerial performer
Different acts for different purposes

We have a vast and varied selection of aerial acts that are suited to all kinds of events. If you’re looking for a short and high impact performance, aerial silk dance is the best option as it’s intense and features spectacular drops. If you’re looking for a laid back performance that’s subtle and sophisticated, our aerial hoop acts are a fabulous option.

Unique requirements

Rigging is an essential factor to consider early on when it comes to hiring an aerialist. The requirements will vary from performer to performer and is something that will need to be supplied externally should the venue be unable to provide it. Many artists on our roster offer free-standing apparatus as an alternative which is just as impactful and something you may wish to consider.
