The Sassy Jassy Sisters

Aerial Ballett on Silks

In the 19. century the trail blazing aerial ladies were huge ensembles of up to 100 dancers. They worked on up to 100 ropes, hanging next to each other, and danced in beautiful synchronized choreographies in the air. We seize this forgotten tradition, and create synchronized aerial art on silks.
Our style is contemporary yet retro nostalgic. But we are happy to adapt our act and costumes to other themes as well.

Aerial Performance Duett with Jana Korb and Sylvia Idelberger – we also work on other props like ropes and trapezes. Depending on your event, depending on your ideas, everything is possible - and we are many - up to 10 aerialistst! (Meaning, we can perform our aerial ballett not just a duett, but with many more performers...)

Jana Korb and Sylvia Idelberger have been co-operating since the beginning of their aerial careers: together in aerial ensembles, in huge aerial productions, in duetts, and in joint artistic creations. After a long time they have created a new big joint production - they are very proud of their Sassy Jassy Sister!

Where does the name "Sassy Jassy Sisters" come from?

Sassy - adj. (Amer., coll.) - lively, bold, and full of spirit; cheeky. To really understand what this means - you have to come and watch our show!

Jassy - Jana plus Sylvia - our super cute super couple nickname...

Sisters - hey, look, can you tell us apart? Not even we ourselves can do that! And now, please tell us, who's taller and who's got the longer legs in our gorgeous splits...
