2018 Performers

Imagine Circus shares circus magic at public and private events through innovative, collaborative, cirque-inspired performances. They transform every event into an unforgettable experience.  Their creative management team has more than a decade of experience producing shows and creating elaborate ambient entertainment. As the caliber of their performances has evolved, so has their desire to promote high quality acts and create next-level shows and events. The idea for Imagine Circus came as a logical next step to elevate the professionalism of performances, focusing on details including choreography, transitions, costuming, makeup, stage lighting, music, rigging safety, client experience, and performer growth. The three merged their previous production companies, AcroEntertainment and Flair in 2017 to create Imagine Circus. As performers, the trio has collaborated for over eight years, pushing the edge of circus talent in the Triangle area and expanding their influence beyond North Carolina, from Georgia to South Carolina to Tennessee to Virginia. By combining collaboration and cooperation, emphasizing innovation, fostering artistic growth, and creating a platform for self expression, Imagine Circus provides the highest quality cirque-style entertainment!
