Our Story

We are Jenna & Francisco....two individuals that have come together from 2 very different parts of the world, who are now living the performers life together.

We met on a contract on MSC cruises in 2013 and have been inseparable ever since! Deciding to combine our talents we started training aerial skills and after much hard work and discipline we now have a variety of aerial and ground acts, with our main discipline and passion being Duo Aerial straps.

As a couple we feel incredibly lucky to be able to work together, travelling the world whilst doing something that we love.....performing!

Our latest achievement has been getting contracted as Guest Entertainers onboard 'Sky Princess & 'Queen Victoria Cunard', in which we performed our 45 minute show - 'Just By Chance', based on our very own true love story.
