Strange things happen in the studio after dark. One night per year, we invite you to come witness this phenomenon for yourself.

Join Brass Butterflies as our students, instructors and special guests showcase their talents for you. This show will include performances from our Cirque kids and Youth Aerials students as well as our adult programs.

RSVP on our Facebook Event Page for all the updates.

Doors:  6:30pm Show:  7:00pm 

Join us for our 7th annual Studio Halloween Showcase and Party.  You'll be entertained throughout the evening by solo, duet and group performances featuring Aerial Silks, Aerial Hoop, acrobatics and more, including some of our amazing Cirque Kids and Youth students.  Treats and non-alcoholic beverages are included in your ticket price.  Every guest will also receive a trick-or-treat bag with some goodies.  Costumes are HIGHLY encouraged.  We'll have a costume contest and the Halloween party will continue after the show until about 10:30pm. 

NOTE:  This will be an all ages appropriate show.  We're taking the grown-up party (19+) featuring pole and burlesque outside of the studio to Maxwell's Concerts and Events this year.  Interested in attending both the Pole and Burlesque Cabaret and the Aerial show?  Visit reception at Brass Butterflies studio or contact the studio by phone or email to purchase a combination ticket and save.

Do I have to wear a costume?

No, but it's more fun if you do!  And you could win a prize!

Will there be seating?

Yes, we are limiting the number of tickets sold to how many we can safely and comfortably fit seated in the aerial studio. If you have accessibility or mobility concerns, please contact the studio in advance so we can accommodate you by reserving accessible seating. Our facility is fully accessible.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No.  The show will be appropriate for all audiences.  We ask that children 15 and under be accompanied by an adult.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is ample parking around the studio including some accessible parking.  Buses run regularly to Conestoga Mall and we recommend ride sharing or carpooling from there.  

What can I bring into the event?

No alcohol is permitted on the premises.  Light refreshments will be provided and are included in your ticket.  We suggest you wear or bring comfortable shoes in case you end up standing or dancing for part of the evening. No cameras.  

Can I take photos/videos?

For the safety and privacy of the performers and enjoyment of the rest of the audience, photography and video recording are strictly prohibited during performances.  This rule will be enforced by studio volunteers and you may be asked to leave if you break this rule. 

If I can't take photos or videos, how will I remember mine or my friend's/family member's performance?

There will be an official event photographer and videographer present and performers may purchase photos and videos after the show.

What's the refund policy?

No refunds on tickets, though you may transfer your ticket to another person that you know.  Please do not resell your tickets online. 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No.  You can bring it on a device.  If someone else is buying your ticket and you are not arriving together, please make sure you know the name and email address that your ticket order was placed under, in case we need to look it up for you if the check-in scan doesn't work for any reason.

 Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes, that's fine as a single person can place an order for multiple tickets.  Ideally when placing your order you will give at least a first and last name of the people you are buying tickets for to prevent loss (we can look them up for you if you lose your ticket).
