While flying through the air on a customized, free-standing trapeze, guests at the San Diego Polo fields had the time of their lives last week, as they swung, tumbled, and soared through the trapeze lessons given by Imagination Entertainment’s Ultimate Trapeze School.  Dreams came to life as guests had the opportunity to work with a trapeze-master, and for one moment feel the thrill of being a circus performer!  We are so excited that we were able to make this spectacular experience available to the guests of this event. 

Sam Trego: “This is really what Imagination Entertainment is all about: creating that special, unique, and unforgettable experience.”Our own Steve Gale captured and created a fantastic time-lapse video of the setup and high-flying action of the...

IE is happy to announce a new event tool that will add that element of “wow” and surprise to your next affair: the Celebration Station.

Developed and created by IE’s multi-talented Steve Gale (aerial artist, rigger, photographer, and welder), these serving stations utilize the mystique and artistry of an aerial performance without a need for venue rigging!  Your guests will be dazzled as the server-artists rise to new heights and create a unique and gorgeous atmosphere.

Sam Trego: “We know that we constantly have to renew ourselves and create new surprises to keep guests happy and entertained. We have seen singers like Pink and Madonna incorporating aerial acts into their stage shows with great success.  We can bring this show element to your...

We are happy to present our new Chinese Pole artist Jacob "Kujo" Lyons whose premiere performance with iL CiRCo took place in February during our Acapulco show.  

Jacob met Steve Gale during a pole workshop recently.  His talent was so obvious that we hired him on the spot.  Sam Trego: "The minute I met Kujo and began working with him, I knew he had a gift.  I honestly didn’t know his story until after we were well into rehearsals!  Kujo brings an enormous amount of character and animation to the role he plays in the Viaggio tour, and we are thrilled with the newest member of our troupe!” "What story?" you may ask.  Jacob "Kujo" Lyons is a famous, professional break-dancer who achieved two decades of global success despite having been born with...

Please enjoy footage we filmed during a corporate event in February 2013 in Orlando, Florida. It features some of our top performers - including contortionist star Sasha Pivaral - showing internationally acclaimed and award winning acts.

We are happy to be able to bring this level of top quality circus performance to corporate and community events worldwide. We specialize in adapting the show to the venue – from arenas to ballrooms, we make it work. Content and length of the program can also be adapted.

Sam Trego: "We enjoy continued success with iL CiRCo due to the fact that we are constantly updating our acts. We stay fresh and keep it exciting. Furthermore acrobatic circus is truly a culture, language and generation crossing form of entertainment. Our audiences...

We’ve had quite a jet-setting week at Imagination Entertainment.  Despite the “air-travel-blues”, our performers delivered wonderful shows in early February and we thank them for being the consummate professionals they are.

The mad dash took us to the Swan and Dolphin Resort in Lake Buena Vista, FL, on February 6th.  The next day we headed straight to Cancun, Mexico, for a February 8th performance, and then flew back to Laguna Beach, CA, for a show at the Montage on February 9th.

Producer Amy Gale: “Yes, it was fast paced and very exciting to work in such gorgeous locations over one long weekend.  While the shows all took place within 4 days, the logistics and preparations took a lot longer.  Each show featured different acts....
