Circus plus burlesque plus camp equals fun.
Aerialists are the performers who truly defy gravity and fly. Of course they use a number of props to do so. And, they have to be incredibly strong.
I photographed these talented performers from the Flying Poodles Big Sexy Circus at the Amsterdam Bar in St. Paul, MN. on April 25, 2013.
The show was very funny and the audience had a great time.
And the skill level of the performers – in aerials, acrobatics, hooping, and dancing – was impressive.
Check out their great costumes!
