They spend their nights up high, above hundreds of people.

Sarah Evenson and Blake Kirkwood are an aerial acrobatic duo who perform at the Queen Kapiolani Hotel in Honolulu. They are partners (and a couple) who work together, flawlessly dancing in the air for audiences each night.

Since arriving in Hawaii they have become some of the most popular performers of the Honolulu scene, and they are one of the biggest attractions.

“I really couldn’t imagine being anything other than an aerialist,” Sarah explains. “Its brought us to Hawaii, its brought us to ‘Aloha Live’ in beautiful Diamond Head, and we get to work together and have a life,” Sarah said.

If you want a flavor of their work — and to understand that aerial acrobatics isn’t just a job, it is a way of life — check out our latest slideshow.
