Space and Apparatus needed for Aerial Performance

Access to a main support beam or reinforced steal girder installed in the roof of the venue is the safest and most ideal rigging option. If you need to hire a free standing aerial rig, it needs 25 x 25 feet of surface/ground space and 18.5 foot in height. There’s also a rectangular and much smaller free standing equipment available, which requires 8 x 8 ft of space and 12 ft overhead clearance. This equipment is employed for smaller spaces. Our Aerial artists can provide the free standing rigging/apparatus that is most suitable for your event.

Costume designs, silk colours, themes and fabrics for an aerial performer can often be selected by you, meaning that themes, brand and company logos can often be matched by the performer.

Aerial Silk
Aerial silk is a performance where an artist(s) perform aerial acrobatics whilst clinging from a strong type of cloth or fabric. Performers effortlessly climb the suspended cloth/fabric without the utilization of wires or harnesses intended for safety. Instead they trust in their training and skill to ensure safety at all times. The fabric is utilized by them to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral their bodies into and out of varied acrobatic positions. Aerial silks can enable a performer to take a dazzling flight through the air, displaying figures and graceful poses in choreographed routines to music if required.

Aerial acrobats add a breath-taking aspect to almost any occasion. Our aerial entertainers are capable of performing at corporate parties, festivals, launches, galas, weddings, television shows, private parties, ceremonies and lots more!

Aerial Hoop
The aerial hoop is rather like a “hula hoop”— suspended from the roof, which the artists use to perform aerial acrobatics and aerial routines. It can be used by spinning, swinging or static.
Straps will be the connection points where in fact the aerial hoop attaches to the rigging. Most aerial hoops hook up at each one or two of these points. The number of straps an aerial hoop has will rely upon how it will be used, the intended impact, and the performer’s comfort and ease. Aerial Hoop performances certainly are amazing to watch. Lots of “WOWS” are sure to come from your audience while the performance goes on. It is good to keep in mind that it’s not just about the “WOW Factor” that an aerial performance can bring, but it’s about hiring the perfect performers to do and we at Franklin James Entertainments have the right performers!
