Janet Rayor's stilt walking and unicycling is appealing to all ages and events -- from tight crowds to small individuals, from up-scale elegance to down-home picnics! Her stunning characters include a Peacock, Carmen á la Miranda, Tie-Chicken, Venetian Lady, Sugarplum Fairy, Butterfly, Bo Peep, Dragonfly, Firebird, Betsy Ross and Singing Woman in a Red Dress. Her magical performances - often compared to a Cirque du Soleil act - have touched people across the country.
Janet designs and creates all her own stilt walking costumes to perform for all sizes of corporations, festivals, fairs, private parties, shows, benefits and openings throughout the year. .
Janet has the amazing ability to engage, stay in character and dance with grace as though she isn't really on the tiny tips of two 2' x 2' poles. Her warm, effortless style is based on years of experience in professional dance, theatre and mask companies. She has charmed high- and low-brow audiences around the country for over a decade.
Also a vocalist, she opened the Red Cat Theatre of downtown LA's Walt Disney Concert Complex singing French street music while dancing on her stilts!
Janet has specialized in roaming performance, including engagements at Seattle Seahawks' opening tailgate party, St. Louis Arts Festival, Wildflower Music Festival in Texas, Los Angeles County Fair, Holter Art Museum in Montana, California State Fair and Seattle Symphony's Benaroya Hall.
Janet will accomodate two characters in any day-long booking. She is at ease with concrete, marble, gravel, grass, inclined and uneven surfaces -- just no quicksand or wet.
"Thank you so much for such an incredible performance! The attendees could not have loved it more and were so touched all that effort was made for them. Very special day. I hope to work with you again one day!" Korrin Bizek
