ABOUT AERIAL BUTTERFLIES
Our Mission is to make the circus accessible through entertainment and fitness.
We are the brain child of Hallie Jane, the Ringmaster and original Aerial Butterfly. An aerialist herself, she was inspired by all of the amazing talented humans in Long Beach that weren't performing. There was not a business in Long Beach that represented humans doing cool shit. Hallie had created her own way in the gig world and it was time to do it for others.
We represent Aerialist, Contortionist, Stiltwalkers, Jugglers, magicians, fortune tellers, models, dancers, hand balancers, Acro duos, hula hoop dancers, fire performers, pole dancers, tight rope walkers, you think it we will find it. Our goal is alway to bring the wow to every event.
