Circo Paradisaea’s  vision is to develop a series of modern-vintage aerial acts, reminiscent of the old-fashioned circus motif with the ‘Big Top’ tent, glittering performances, and impossible feats. We have series of Covid friendly outdoor performances on silks and lyra including solos, doubles, trios, synchronized routines, and specialized apparatuses. Costumes of burgundy velvet and gold sparkles will make us stand out as we fly through the sky, high above the spectators below. Our goal is to travel around the Niagara Region with these performances, aiming to spark joy, wonder, and interest in the circus arts. We would like to demonstrate the artistry and beauty of aerial arts to encourage its popularity both with presenters for booking performances and as a recreational or professional activity for children and adults alike.
