Heliummm Aerial Dance and Entertainment is the brain-child of international aerialist and dancer Heather Hammond and performance artist, director and writer Diane ‘Jeep’ Ries. With over 50 years of combined performance experience, this creative team delivers first-class professional entertainment that always hits the mark.

Heather Hammond – Artistic Director

Heather is an accomplished and versatile international aerialist, dancer, choreographer and producer. She is known for her exquisite artistry and choreography, and her exacting organizational skills as a producer.

Heather’s first performance was as ‘Happy’ in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves way back in Grade 1. Her physical talent was also noted early on and led her to ballet and competitive springboard diving. She danced as a soloist with Ballet Ouest de Montreal while earning a Pharmacy Degree at the Universite de Montreal. Even with a successful career in the pharmaceutical industry after graduation, Heather felt compelled to return to her love of dance.

Heather graduated from the School of Toronto Dance Theater’s Professional Training Program, as co-recipient of the Leadership Award. Heather was a featured soloist in works by Jose Limon, Charles Weidmann, Christopher House, and Conrad Alexandrowicz, among others. After she stumbled upon flying trapeze lessons with Marsha Kennington of MainSpace Circus, Heather was quickly invited to join the performance troupe. And she’s been in the air ever since.

Heather has graced stages across North America and as far away as Japan, performing for prestigious people and companies such as:

  • Ikea
  • Bayer Pharmaceuticals
  • Dupont
  • L’il Kim
  • Camel Cigarettes
  • Jayco RVs
  • Publicis
  • Paramount Cinemas
  • A-list celebrities
  • BBC/Channel 4
  • TLC

In addition to producing and performing extensively with Heliummm, she has worked with:

  • Cirque LeMasque
  • Bindlestiff Family Cirkus
  • High Strung aerial dance
  • MainSpace Circus
  • Zero Gravity Circus
  • Cirque Sublime
  • Noemie Lafrance | Sens Productions (dancing 70 feet up on a Frank Gehry building)
  • Amy Greenfield
  • world-renowned artist Tony Oursler
  • photographer/videographer Bill Hayward
  • Grounded Aerial
  • Canadian Opera Company
  • Premier Talent

Heather excels as an instructor. She has developed and inspired diving teams to win regional championships, and budding professional aerialists to exceed their performance goals. Her playful, yet focused and patient teaching style produces results. And, with a M.Sc., and a National Academy of Sports Medication personal trainer certification, it’s hard to find a more qualified instructor than Heather.
