HOOP / LYRA – aerial and ground based
The aerial hoop or Lyra, is a circular steel apparatus suspended from the ceiling, on which circus artists may perform aerial acrobatics. It can be used static, spinning, or swinging and can be tailored in size and shape to suit the aerialist.
Aerial silk is a performance in which one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a fabric. Performers climb the suspended fabric without the use of safety lines, and rely only on their training and skill to ensure safety. They use the fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral their bodies in and out of various positions. Aerial silks may be used to fly through the air, striking poses and figures while flying.
Jade has adapted her abilities to perform this stunning aerial art with grace and elegance. She has trained with ex-circus artists when developing her range if skills.
A contortion is a twisted position. People who twist and bend their body into strange and unnatural positions.
Jade has been in the performance industry from a very young age, mastering multiple styles of dance. She has competed and placed in a number of competitions across Western Australia.
Trained by circus performers Jade has been in this field since the age of 11, she has the experience and talent necessary to create a spectacular show.
In the 1920s, traveling circuses and sideshows would utilize pole dancing with a pole in the middle of a tent. Eventually pole dancing moved from tents to bars, and combined with burlesque dance. The earliest recorded pole dance was in 1968 with a performance by Belle Jangles at Mugwump in Oregon.
In 2010 Jade Maree discovered the love for pole dancing, attending her first class at Polercise WA Aerial Fitness Studio, Australia. Since then she has performed and competed at many events, walking away with 2nd place the Miss SW Australian Pole Competition.
Two years into her career, she began instructing to pass on her knowledge and skills to others. Late 2013 she was offered an instructor’s position in Dubai.
