Katherine Would, aerialist, completed a degree in Circus Arts at the Circus Space in London specialising in the difficult option of aerial straps. This requires a great amount of strength, flexibility and expertise. Katherine is ideal for all luxury events across the UK or worldwide. Straps, also known as aerial straps, are a type of aerial apparatus on which various feats of strength and flexibility may be performed, often in the context of a performance.
It is a cotton or nylon web apparatus that looks like two suspended ribbons. By wrapping the strap ends around hands and wrists, the performer performs holds, twists, rolls and manoeuvres, requiring extreme strength and precision similar men’s rings in gymnastics. (Wikipedia)
Aerialist Circus Arts
A company of performers who put on diverse entertainment shows can include clowns, acrobats, trained animals, trapeze acts, musicians, dancers, hoopers, tightrope walkers, jugglers, magicians, unicyclists. Also other object manipulation and stunt-oriented artists. The term also describes the performance which has followed various formats through its 250-year modern history.
Philip Astley is credited with being the ‘father’ of the modern format when he opened the first circus in 1768 in England. Contemporary format has been credited with reviving the circus tradition since the 1980s when a number of groups introduced circus based almost solely on human skills and which drew from other performing art skills and styles.
