Grounded Aerial® inspires people to play, think, and grow through bungee classes, trainings, events and shows


Grounded Aerial® is ecstatic to present INSECTINSIDE in virtual reality! This immersive aerial play depicts love, greed, sacrifice, and many interactions of the human hive. Get lost in a fantasy world as winged aerialists soar above and creepy-crawly dancers skitter below. Revel in awe as Father Mantis towers over you.

Captured in 360° video, we harness the motion-sensing capability of your smartphone and pair it with the included VR goggles to bring this unique experience to life. This aerial play also is an auditory adventure! Music by John Medeski & Medeski Martin & Wood.

Order now, so the VR goggles arrive in time for the launch on November 27th.

TICKETS STARTING AT $30 (goggles included USA)

“When you tell Karen you would like to suspend aerialists over water, or off the side of a high rise…she takes it further by telling you (not “NO WAY” ) but instead, exactly how she plans to do that for you and add even more wow to it.”

-Lumincity Entertainment Division (L.E.D.)

“My friends and I had an absolute blast! We all did our first class at the Performance Garage. My abs hurt so bad the next day from working out and laughing the entire time! Added bonus, Karen is SO much fun and so talented. She really made it such a fun experience.“
