Those Multi-tasking aerialists
Brett Womack and Rachel Bowman are an aerial duo based out of Los Angeles, California who have performed all over the world as guest artists for opera and ballet companies, symphony orchestras, dance festivals and contemporary circus companies. The duo have appeared in numerous films and commercials and in television shows and print campaigns.
In March 2014 Womack and Bowman founded their own aerial dance studio: Womack and Bowman – The Loft. They take great pride in their studio and have worked hard to cultivate a safe space for students to challenge themselves both technically and artistically, overcoming fears and pushing boundaries to reveal the incredible potential of the human body. Students participate in regular studio performances and many have gone on to work as professional aerialists throughout the country and abroad.
Rachel began her career as a ballet dancer in Australia working with Opera Australia Ballet Company and the Australian Ballet. She trained as an aerialist at the National Institute of Circus Arts in Melbourne and has travelled the world working as a dancer and aerialist performing in Europe, China, Japan and the USA.

As a choreographer her work can be seen in numerous music videos for artists including Snoop Dogg, in television on shows such as My Fair Wedding, in the film Powder Blue Starring Jessica Biel and Patrick Swayze and in Plays, Opera’s, Musical Theatre productions and Symphony Orchestra’s throughout the country.

Brett has performed his own choreography as a solo aerialist for companies such as Cirque Dreams, Luminario Ballet, and Troupe Vertigo.
