Aerial Antics provides refined and inspiring performances, mixing the elegance of aerial dance with the excitement of dynamic twists and falls. We chose to call ourselves “Aerial Antics” to reflect our playful approach to choreography that incorporates elements of other performance arts. We happily tailor performances to your needs and can get you involved in the act if desired.
Through collaboration with other circus arts collectives such as Dragon's Ire, MeloFranatic and A Beautiful Smack to the Head we offer a variety of crowd animation options including: fire dancing, stilt walking and, LED glowing: Butterfly Dancers, bit whips, hula hoops, poi, devil sticks and levitation wands.
Aerial Antics supports the artistic work of Cirquonscient, a collective of circus artists who create and perform original vertical theater pieces with a desire to promote awareness of contemporary cultural and social topics interpretatively through circus and other art forms both nationally and internationally.
Cirquonscient's original show Quantum Calamity won "Best of Festival" for it's venue at the 2019 Ottawa Fringe Festival and the troupe performed in Ireland in 2022.

For aerials, our technical requirements are minimum 13’ ceilings with rigging points or accessible structural beams, or the ability to set up our portable rig which sets to a maximum of 20' and has a 20' x 20' footprint. A site inspection will be necessary before we can confirm a performance. For convenience, we have our own certified rigger.
