Who We Are
Becca Battoe - Chief Aerialogist
as an aerialist and bartender, our founder saw an opportunity in the Event market to combine these two great passions. You may recognize her voice from the many audiobooks she has lent it to, (ever heard of Fifty Shades of Grey?), or the twenty-two McDonalds commercials she's recorded, but Becca has the most experience in the industry as a dancer, beginning with her first professional job in the Louisville Ballet's The Nutcracker as a child. For nearly twenty years, Becca has honed her hospitality skills working in bars, restaurants, clubs, catering gigs, and has worked special events of all shapes and sizes, as both an entertainer and as catering staff. Hailing from a humble background in Louisville, KY, Becca's southern charm, work ethic and desire to cultivate lasting relationships is unparalleled.
