- Spotlight acts generally draw attention to one area of the room while the Aerialist performs a 4-8 minute piece choreographed to music. The act can be a solo, duet, or group act on one or multiple apparatuses. This is a great option for events with a detailed schedule.
- Ambient acts refer to Aerialists that stay in the air for 15-20 minutes at a time, typically to a live band or DJ and maintaining a slower performance speed. Ambient aerialists are a great way to add entertainment to your event without taking your guests attention away from the rest of the venue. Ambient Aerials are a great choice for events with a more free flowing schedule and layout.
PORTABLE AERIAL RIG
- ACA's portable Aerial rig is set up by our crew indoors or outdoors at a height of your choice between 16ft and 24ft high. The rig takes up a space of about 20 x 20ft and is perfect for venues with ceilings that are difficult to rig from or for outdoor events.
DUET & GROUP ACTS
- Duets and group acts can be done as spotlight acts, ambient acts, indoors or outdoors. Adding more than one Aerialist can be quite the spectacle for your audience and guests!
This ambient aerial act is a hit at any adult party or event where alcohol is being served. ACA's Aerialists will pour champagne or other alcoholic beverages for your guests while suspended in the air from an apparatus!
- Who knew mermaids could fly?! Now they can! We'll even put them in a net!
*What you need to know about booking an Aerialist: Depending on the venue and setting, booking an Aerialist can require hiring a professional certified rigger. An ideal ceiling for rigging aerials has exposed support beams (steel is the best!). If a ceiling is deemed not riggable, ACA's portable Aerial rig is the best option.

Fire can be done indoors (depending on the venue) but is typically done outdoors in the evening after the sun sets.

FIRE & ACROBATICS
ACA mixes the excitement of partner Acrobatics and the danger of Fire performance to create a thrilling sight. Fire Acro is done as a duet but can be done with a group. This act is around 4-5 minutes in length and can be done once or several times throughout an evening.
*What you need to know about booking a Fire performance: Booking a Fire performance for your event ALWAYS involves hiring a Fire Safety Technician. Depending on the number of performers you book, the nature of the act you request, the venue/setting, and the size of your audience you may be required to hire more than one Fire Safety. ACA's Fire Safety Techs are there to keep the audience and performer safe. The safety tech manages the fueling station and assists with extinguishing props when a performer is done, as well as spotting the performer during the act. The safety tech brings equipment such as fire extinguishers, wet towels, etc, assists with crowd control, and usually hides backstage or off to the side.
