Amplified into the Air
Welcome to Grounded Aerial

Grounded Aerial is a visceral, innovative combination of modern dance and uniquely rigged aerial elements. We create mind-and-body-bending choreography and vibrant interactive characters for both theatrical performances and corporate events/advertising.

By utilizing the dimensions of each space, we craft pieces specifically for each venue never to be duplicated for any other event. Our technically trained dancers come from such backgrounds as Stomp, De La Guarda, Momix, Blueman Group, Cirque du Soleil, and Pilobolus.

    GROUNDEDAERIAL

    We utilize a variety of unique rigging-intensive systems that employ advanced rock climbing, theatrical, and circus technology ranging from manually operated counterweight systems to state of the art motorized aerial systems. Our versatility and knowledge allows us to create an interesting organic synergy between performer and technician that is completely novel in the world of human fly rigging, and from the response of past audience members and event attendees, it is “one of the best parts of the show.”
