Iluminar Professional Productions

Iluminar produces professional productions which are made up of dancers, aerialists and circus artists who excel in their craft. Professional dancers are contracted for each show and paid for performances. Under the Artistic Direction of Emmy Moon, Iluminar’s professional productions excel in creating full length aerial dance productions that focus on high level circus and dance skills while incorporating theatrical stage elements like props, stage design, and custom made costumes. Past productions have included Long LostNightmare in the Air, Haunted, Into the Forest and The Rivers.
