We are a group of ladies on Florida’s Emerald Coast who fell in love with aerial dance and wanted to share this beguiling form of entertainment with others. We live to charm your guests and entertain the crowd! Operating out of Panama City, Florida; we are available nationally.
Aerial Events was created to fulfill our dream of becoming aerial performers. It was founded in 2014 by Lydia Faith, who was joined in performance by aerial training pals from the panhandle’s best aerial studio: Aerial Dance Panama City. Since then the company has expanded to embrace a lovely group of talented performers with skills up in the air and down on the ground. Each performer has a different performance background and flair, which makes for a diverse and entertaining troupe!
Our performance company is established on the principles of professionalism and encouragement. We’re not just a bunch of snooty aerialists! We understand that events aren’t for us, they’re for the client and guests to enjoy; and we do everything in our power to ensure a seamless, exciting event that guests can’t stop talking about.
We have performed nationwide at gorgeous holiday parties, corporate events, grand openings, clubs, private parties, festivals, shows, birthday parties, fundraisers, galas, balls, product launches, and fashion shows. We transform ho-hum events into mesmerizing parties!
Sources of Inspiration
Our creative juices never run dry! Aerial Events goes on frequent retreats to catch aerial shows and receive top-level training. We have to admit we’re biased, and our favorite shows often include our former aerial instructors! We love the shows Cirque du Soleil Zumanity (previous home to our former instructor Lesley Vaughn) and Cirque Du Soleil Toruk (starring our one-time coach Giulia Piolanti), and have enjoyed training at L’Oracle Las Vegas, Trapeze Las Vegas, Trapeze School New York – DC, Sky Candy Austin, Sky Gym Atlanta, The Space Atlanta, and Scorpius Dance Theatre (to name a few). It’s a great way to experience different styles of aerial performance and training to diversity our knowledge base!
We are also inspired by everyday life - a moving song, a special costume, an emotional situation, or a style of movement. We challenge ourselves to be continuously innovative and creative.
With our elegant portable aerial rig, we can easily perform indoors or outside in just about any space! We offer five-minute aerial and ground acts, thirty-minute aerial productions, and ground or aerial ambiance background entertainment by the hour. Our acts and shows are constantly evolving and improving as we master new skills and incorporate new costumes and performers. Each performance is tailored to the event and its needs, which allows for a fresh and unique show every time. We love working with clients to make their vision a reality! If you’re looking for something special, we can accommodate that too! Contact us to discuss your concept and we’ll happily provide you with a performance estimate.
