Aerial Emery

Born into a circus family, circus arts has always been a part of Aerial’s life.  She started performing at age 7, and was immediately in love with the stage. For nine years she trained at Xelias Aerial Arts, and performed all over the United States. She spent her summers touring  with Circus Smirkus, the international award winning youth circus. Aerial also trained and competed as a rhythmic gymnast, always most passionate about the hoop. Sick of competing, she decided to take the hoop to the circus stage, combining traditional hula hooping, dance and rhythmic gymnastics to create a unique hula hoop act.  She graduated in 2013 from École de Cirque de Québec, specializing in hula hoops and cyr wheel. Since graduation she has toured with the Midnight Circus, the GOP Varieté Theater in Germany and Broadways “Pippin the Musical” with the 7 Doigts de la Main.
