|Some Frequently Asked Questions
About an Aerial Performance
Where are you located?
We are located in Vancouver, British
Columbia, Canada. We are also happy to
discuss travelling to your location, if you are
outside of the lower mainland!
How much does a performance cost?
(Request a quote)
Cost depends on a few factors. An aerial
performance is very different from one on the
ground. Each performance is unique because
of the way the we interact with the space we
The most significant cost for an aerial
performance is the "rigging". This is the cost
and time involved in ascertaining if your venue
has a place in the ceiling, where we can hang
our apparatus and the cost and time involved
in hanging the apparatus for your event and
taking it down again afterwards.
Cost will also depend on what you have in
mind for the performance; things like the
number of performers, the number of acts, the
duration of the acts, the costuming and if we
are performing to one of our set routines or if
you have something specific in mind in terms
of costumes, music and type of performance.
How do I find out if there is a rigging point in
the ceiling of the venue?
Ask the people at your venue if there is a "load
bearing point" in the ceiling and what it is
rated for. In other words, how many pounds it
can safely hold. You can also ask if there an
accessible structural beam in the ceiling. We
will have to do a site inspection with our rigger
to confirm if we can rig in your venue but this
is a good start.
How long is a performance?
That depends on the number of performers
and what type of performance it is. Most of our
solo or duet set routines are done to a specific
piece of music and most songs are 4 to 8
minutes long. However, we can choreograph
an act for a specific amount of time that will
meet the needs of your event and your budget.
Can you do an aerial performance if there
isn't a place in the ceiling for your apparatus?
Yes! We also have our own indoor or
outdoor portable rig
which can be used at a minimum of 14 feet but
higher is always better.
How high does the ceiling have to be?
The higher the better. The more height that we
have, the more spectacular drops and roll
downs we can do. We can do some wonderful
hoop, silks and dance trapeze acts in a space as
low as 12 feet but 26 feet is our favourite
height for our aerial silks performances.
How much floor space do you need under you?
Again, that depends on the performance and
apparatus we are performing on. We climb up
and down the fabric and do drops within feet
of the floor on the silks. An 8 foot by 8 foot
square underneath each piece of equipment
works well but it can vary with the apparatus,
performance and number of performers. For
example, we could be suspended above your
guests if there is another way for us to get up
